These Colorful Geometric Tables Are Works of Art

The Palmador collection is on display at the Musée Delacroix

Sometimes furniture and other functional objects can crossover into the realm of art. These colorful, abstract, geometric tables from Milan-based designers Emiliano Salci and Britt Moran of Dimorestudio do just that—and are currently on display at the Musée National Eugène Delacroix in Paris.

The project "Conversation Colours" is presented as a series of pieces from the duo's "Palmador" collection at the Paris design festival D'Days. The tables are fabricated in polychrome in a range of translucent and solid hues, and their component parts—table tops and legs—are rendered as geometric shapes, some of them so delightfully disorienting that they're unrecognizable as furniture. Each piece takes up residence in one the museum's rooms, establishing a dialogue, or color conversations, with the works of painter Eugène Delacroix, further blurring the line between design and art. The exhibition runs through June 13.
