At Design Interviews

Interview with Irena Kilibarda : Frank Scott: What is the main principle, idea and inspiration behind your design?. Irena Kilibarda : The main idea was to use Corian with all its' material properties and possibilities in combination with two other materials in a furniture design. Table T is the product that shows at the same time all Corian Illumination Series caracteristics and shows the engineering excellence and stability of a table design. .Frank Scott: How long did it take you to design this particular concept?. Irena Kilibarda : From the night when the idea came to my mind to the manufacture, one year passed. The most time was spent for the metalic holding construction, or the structure of the table. It was supposed to be very stable, but since the Corian Illumination is partly transparent, and Corian as a material needs underconstruction to be stable, we needed to think of a metalic construction that will the function and cooperate with the Table T design. .Frank Scott: Why did you design this particular concept? Was this design commissioned or did you decide to pursuit an inspiration?. Irena Kilibarda : I decided to pursuit an inspiration. First there was one table, after the whole collection of Table Ts. .Frank Scott: Is your design being produced or used by another company, or do you plan to sell or lease the production rights or do you intent to produce your work yourself?. Irena Kilibarda : I started producing the design myself-dsignedby with two workshops working for us- Preparations, CNC cutting; Metal works, galvanization, solid wood and finishes. .Frank Scott: Who is the target customer for his design?. Irena Kilibarda : The tables could be used in homes, hospitality, outdoor or indoor. They are admired both by very young or older people. .Frank Scott: What sets this design apart from other similar or resembling concepts?. Irena Kilibarda : Its' material combination; sustainability; resistance to heat, water and scratches. This table could be used with led light or without, which creates a special atmosphere. .Frank Scott: How did you come up with the name for this design? What does it mean?. Irena Kilibarda : Table T- It is a table, and the first letter of the table, letter T, is in a shape of a table. .Frank Scott: What is the role of technology in this particular design?. Irena Kilibarda : The role of technology in this particular design is great. The high tech material Corian needs programed CNC 3D machine to create its 3d structure out of the boards of Corian that come in 6, 12 or 19mm of thickness. .
