GEMELLI
Designed by Sanayi313 Architects; the story and inspiration behind the side tables “Gemelli” are interesting.
Editor: Gülin Güzel
The story behind side tables “Gemelli”, which means twins in Italian, is based on the fact that twins with the same look have different souls. To symbolize this, we used wood as the material. Although the textures coming out of the same body are similar, they turn out to be different, which can be seen only when looked really closely. We preferred to use ash tree as our material that has a filled and smooth body, which gave us inspiration. Gemelli’s lower layer is thin and thickens upwardly. We got this idea from round shape top of the tree and gave life to Gemelli by doing the layer transitions in a meandering way.
