A low table that was designed for the Manufacture Nationale de Sèvres, created 275 years as the royal porcelain, today a national living heritage whose tradition and skill remain unchanged. Reflecting the characteristics of the Sèvres Porcelains which are endowed with a full range of expertly crafted decorative details, the design encompassed a square-shaped table gradually dispersing into a group of small round-shaped tables, and then transforming into lotus leaves. The gradient transition from the flat and smooth artifacts to natural objects with expressive texture was used to represent the “floating” and “flowing” sensation of water. The speed and the direction of the “flow” can also be varied by changing the positioning of the small tables.
