Pushpam is a collection of small tables that stand out for their perfect formal balance and for the striking texture of their cement finish, available in two colours.
"Many years ago, I called my chairs Papilio because their silhouettes reminded me of butterflies. Now I have called my latest project Fiore, or flower in Italian, because the Papilio Shell chairs sit around these tables like butterflies flying around a flower. The combination of a Fiore table with the Papilio chairs creates a pleasant outdoor environment for a coffee or a quick meal. This was made possible by the use of a special cement moulding technology. We also added pigments so as to match the tables to the shell of the Papilio Shell chairs."
