Kajo – Table
The table top is a ceramic bowl made on a potter's wheel, unique in its form, color, texture and pattern. The three delicate strains on its edges are hand shaped in the likeness of spouts in traditional pots. They form the points of contact with the wooden structure. These two seemingly different values bond the objects while maintaining their distinctness. The ceramic bowl can be easily removed from the structure and the wooden legs can be folded flat. The table comes in three sizes, in several options of decoration and coloring.
Designers: Małgorzata Knobloch i Igor Wiktorowicz | Witamina D
They founded the design studio and the proprietary brand of Witamina D at the beginning of 2013. As part of the studio they take on competitions and implement projects for special orders. Their key achievements include: first place in the competition for the urban furniture for Gdansk; an honorable mention in the competition for the radiator inspired by the SLOW theme – Terma Design 2014, a design for the main exhibition of Gdynia Design Days 2015.
As their brand they produce furniture and other objects designed for home and garden. Their designs are characterized by quality, craftsmanship, local identity, simplicity and timeless forms. They work with local contractors but quite often they personally refine their products. They prefer to work with solid wood. They combine them with other materials while searching for new solutions.
