DESIGNERS SELECT Tables and casegoods Designers name their favorite furniture for retail and display Jerry Jacobs, Assoc. AIA, ASID Joined + Jointed: Concave bookshelf Kreoo: Arcaico Reader Service No. 210 President, Design Director Jerry Jacobs Design San Francisco Christian Liaigre: Galion Console Reader Service No. 211 Reader Service No. 212 "Joining two of these bookshelves makes quite a statement. Their concave design adds a new dimension to the standard shelving look, and it reminds me of yachts-especially after watching the America's Cup recently in San Francisco." "I like the grandness and the flexibility of this table, which could work well in a store entrance or for the display of an exclusive collection. It has a great cantilever, and the cylindrical marble legs can be made with any marble you like." "I particularly like this console because of its curved, half-circle legs. Its form shows how creatively wood can be used, and gives a sexy twist to a soft, cool, and contemporary design." Iacoli & McAllister: Hialeah Table Davis: Span Established & Sons: Udukuri Reader Service No. 213 Reader Service No. 214 Reader Service No. 215 Associate Callison Seattle "The design of the Hialeah Table, combined with its mix of materials, reminds me of some of my favorite pieces of jewelry. This isn't a surprise since Seattle's Iacoli & McAllister designs jewelry as well as furniture and lighting." "The surface of Span extends twelve feet horizontally and is supported only by four slim legs. It is simply jaw-dropping. The sleek profile and clean lines make it especially well-suited for collaborative projects in a contemporary setting." "I am particularly drawn to this modern table's stunning surface of brightly-colored epoxy resin. It is made using traditional Japanese techniques that expose the natural grain of Douglas fir. Each table is one of a kind." Matthew Goodrich COORDINATION: Thread Trestles Böwer: Desk Pad Matter: HS1 Reader Service No. 216 Reader Service No. 217 Reader Service No. 218 "We always seek ways for guests to personalize their experience. The design detail of this table expresses its function: a threaded walnut leg and colorful steel frame allow the table height to be adjusted to suit the user." "While designing guestrooms for a new micro-hotel brand, we scrutinized what travelers need to work in a small space. Part midcentury modern, part Donald Judd sculpture, this compact desk delivers a lot: a leather work surface, colorful dividers, and integrated power." "This system combines shelf support and a bookend into a single bracket. Graphic colors and materiality evoke the work of Charlotte Perriand and Jean Prouvé. The palette options are versatile: black powder-coated metal with ebony wood reads cool, while copper with reclaimed oak is warm and rich." Lindsay Willingham Director of Design AvroKO New York 66 NOVEMBER 2013
