The launch of the collection of furniture under the brand name Enzyma includes, from the outset, a number of models belonging to various types: cabinets, tables, sideboards, carpets and libraries. However, the “Gola” table, designed by Gianluca Sgalippa, is chosen as the most representative model of that new design world. “Gola” is formed by two asymmetrical wings made of bent wood. The surface of the “opening” starts from a solid color (in this case, it’s purple), but the color fades to white-plaster while bending out on the horizontal plane. The central support and the presence of a single leg create a visual effect of lightness and suspension in the vacuum, despite the large size of the table and the rigor of its geometry.
The sophisticated dégradé color effect is achieved by digital printing on laminate.
“Gola” has an elegant and dynamic image that animates the object even when not in use. It plays a creative way to “dining” and to characterize the domestic landscape.
In line with the general philosophy of Enzyma, “Gola” fully expresses the contemporary size without sacrificing the timeless style and without accommodating the sudden changes of fashion.
The catalog by Enzyma also offer the console version.
The “Gola” table (and the coordinate console) can only be purchased through the website www.enzyma.it , where you can also see the other products available today in the collection.
