IRENA KILIBARDA_PORTRAIT

Table T by . is a synonym to ‘innovation--design’. Their pragmatic approach towards its functionality, ergonomics and aesthetics are well stated via its articulation and construction technique. Table T speaks for a leading edge ontology in furniture designing, upholding sustainable practices

It’s a collection of tables made out of Corian® and Dupont™ combined with wood and metal for indoor or outdoor use with LED light strips incorporated. Rechargeable battery or electrical cable can be used as energy source for LED.  It is available in solid and illumination series Corian® in 3 sizes: small, medium and large.

The idea for Table “T” goes back to 2012, but became “alive” in the beginning of April 2013 with its first prototype in ice-white colour.  It reflects delicate designs by combining smooth lines and materials. Built in LED strip will be the bridge light source between a romantic candle light and futuristic feeling of Corian® illumination Series Dupont™ as the main material, metallic painted holding structure and solid wood as its standing parts.

The essential idea of the designer was to combine Corian® with more than one material, try to make it stable without its usual “under-construction”. The most challenging construction detail was solving the incorporation of the metallic holding structure with the illumination Series without it being visible, when LED strip is lit. LED light is passing through the white semi-transparent surface leaving the linear graphics behind.

Construction
As the size of the table varies, the construction technique changes. Table T size L has four verticals due to its width of 92cm and length of 160cm. Table T size M has one vertical due to its’ width of 75cm and length of 75cm.  Our non standard size BIG, 240x92x72cm, has six verticals to support the Corian table top. The metallic construction is dismantled easily and the wooden part could be unscrewed from the upper part for easier displacement and packing of the table. The dimensions are picked to suit the width of standard Corian boards so the material is used without many left over. The paint used for the metallic construction suits the sustainable idea of the table; all the materials used are sustainable.

 Manufacture
Corian®, and Dupont™ as a high-end solid sustainable material used in home as well as in retail, hospitality or medical environments comes in the boards of 6-19mm of 93/76cm x 365cm.

It is cut, prepared and glued with the Corian® liquid glue in precise colour manually for later-on CNC cutting and forming the 3D structure of the table. To get the sleek final result, tables are polished manually with 5 different granulations of the abrasive.

The metallic construction is also made manually, coated in any RAL or Pantone colour or galvanized into brass, copper or stainless steel. Solid wood of the Table T® collection is manufactured from the high quality solid wood.

About the Designer
Serbian designer, Irena Kilibarda, believes that design can and should always be both functional and beautiful. For her, the two factors should never have to be mutually exclusive. With this mantra in mind, she founded her own product and interior design cabinet dsignedby. in 2008 with the help of her sister Iva and has been pursuing the realisation of this ethos ever since.
Specialising in highly advanced LED and technology, dsignedby produces original pieces of statement furniture and products that are as aesthetically beautiful as they are impressive in terms of their technology. Coming from a background of architectural design, Irena Kilibarda has mastered the art of combining simplicity with classic influences before adding final high-tech touches on her out-of-the-ordinary designs. It is this nod to both the legacy and future of product design that is dsignedby.’s hallmark.
