Cooper
side table 2016


dimensions: WxLxH = Ø 55 cm H=47 cm

Inspiration for the Cooper design has been drawn from the colourful city life of Cairo. Cooper quotes the round sieves used for cooking in Egypt, consisting of a grid structure surrounded and fixed by a round wooden frame. The two-piece body of the Cooper side table sits on three steel legs, which in turn are fit into a ring. The table top can be removed and used as a tray. Its delicate pattern creates a sense of transparency and lightness, hiding the objects stowed away underneath. An Arabic tile pattern has been stripped down to its geometric base elements in order to generate a new contemporary pattern that is stamped into the Cooper table top. The wooden body consists of several veneer layers. Cooper is available in different colour combinations: whitened beech or stained dark beech combined with coral or nubia.

Cairo – a source of inspiration
The colourful city life of Cairo provided inspiration for a unique collection of furniture, including the Cooper side table and Mashrabeya cabinet. The collection invites you to go on a journey to the Orient with its unique colours, smells and moods of light. In these designs, Nina Mair has processed her impressions of the hustle and bustle of Cairo. Impressions such as taking a rest in the refreshing shades of a backyard have influenced her designs as well as the diversity of smells and colours, from saffron to curry, cardamom and curcuma discovered by her on the many spice markets around the city. The design of Cooper and Mashrabeya reflects the magic and charm of Arabian culture, which Nina Mair translates into her typically European and distinctive signature, creating a timeless piece of furniture with an oriental flair.
