Patrick Carmody & Kfir Shetrit

Patrick and Kfir are two designers from two very different backgrounds, but they come together in their studio obsessively crafted design to make beautiful, imaginative prototype furniture. With ocd, they express their shared belief in simple, minimal, functional furniture through a consistent aesthetic.

The PiX table, shown below in walnut, was created out of a thought: the simplest side table possible. The frame is made from steel rods that balance on each other, and has multiple options for a table top, each with clean minimal lines. We love this rectangular walnut top, with strong lines intersecting and diverging as you move around the table. We’re excited to have a number of PiX tables in the spring show.

Kfir and Patrick also have more complex, larger works (although not in this show). The Mudo table is made from flat sheets of material that are cut to minimize waste. The result is a wonder for lovers of the geometric: a base made up of repeating tesselations, topped with a sheet of glass.
