Philipp Aduatz's Villarceau Table is based on a geometric concept discovered by the French astronomer Yvon Villarceau—a family of circles constructed by slicing a torus with bitangent planes at a specific angle. Every point on a torus can have four circles drawn through it; two of them are the Villarceau circles. The small Villarceau Table measures 100 x 100 x 43 cm. The design is available as an edition of 8 + 2AP.
Vienna-based designer Philipp Aduatz creates limited-edition functional objects that are highly sculptural in nature. Working with innovative materials and fabrication technologies, Aduatz combines traditional craft concepts and techniques with cutting edge implements like 3D printing, 3D laser scanning, CNC milling, and rapid prototyping. Greatly influenced by sculptors Constantin Brâncusi and Tony Cragg, Aduatz aims to develop a distinct language of form in each of his pieces, encouraging a new discourse between the object and its user or viewer.
