Volage Low Tables
The Volage EX‑S low tables are versatile and available in two rectangular sizes. The edges are rounded, and the tops are supplied with either a single, or double top, the lower of the two serving as a shelf for magazines or small objects. Also included is a low, double-top table. The top is set sideways to the legs, below which is a container unit consisting of two hand-made wooden trays.
The tables are available Carrara, Marquina, Carnico, Emperador, Calacatta e Sahara noir, with polished or matte finishing. The base is in aluminum with the same finishes as the Volage EX‑S sofa, in other words, polished aluminum or matte anthracite or gunmetal chrome. The trays are supplied in Santos rosewood, or black-stain oak.
Philippe Starck has a mission and a vision: creation, whatever shape it takes, must make life better for the largest number of people possible. Starck believes this highly poetic, political, rebellious, benevolent, pragmatic and subversive duty must be borne by all and he resumes it with the humor that has accompanied his approach since the earliest days. Despite his thousands of projects - completed or in the making - he remains committed to never forgetting the essential.
Starck possesses an anticipatory concern for environmental implications. His profound comprehension of contemporary mutations, his enthusiasm for imagining new lifestyles, his determination to change the world, his devotion to a positive reduction, his love of ideas, his desire to defend the intelligence of usefulness - and the usefulness of intelligence - have accompanied one iconic creation after the other. His technological miracles are vectors of democratic ecology, focused on action and a respect for the future of both humans and nature. Predicting the phenomena of convergence and dematerialization, Philippe Starck has always devised objects that demand the most from the least.
Philippe Starck is all of the above, but above all, he is a man of honesty, in the purest tradition of the Renaissance artists.
