- Essey Tall Illusion Table - Clear
- The design gives the impression of a table cloth on a round table
- However, the object uses the structural strength of the folded material to create a magical and surprising experience - an illusion
Objects designed by Essey focus on issues identified from observations and experiments and, redefined into new concepts, challenge today’s conventional thinking. New values, essential to an issue, are expressed and communicated in product forms and functions. Creativity, imagination and innovation are the key themes
The Essey brand name is derived from the word “essential”, forming the very core of our values and inspiration. Nature is a powerful source of inspiration due to the evolutionary and organic fundamentals of minimalist success factors. Ultimately nature acts using the simplest means - the essentials.
Essey is the story not of the evolution of design but rather of an evolution in design.
In the world of nature shapes are defined by their function, it forms the very essence of our natural world.
In the world of design, shapes often only bear slight resemblance to their function, if at all. How many times have we looked at something and wondered what it is, or what it is used for? The world of design is not always in harmony with the world of nature and it is this imbalance that needs to be corrected.
The belief of Essey founder John Brauer, that function should be representative of natural form, is at the very core of the company and is at the heart of its design philosophy - Symbolic Functionalism.
