“The Nomos Table, developed for Italian furniture manufacturer Tecno, is characterised by its splayed metal legs, angled from a central spine, as if poised for flight. Some critics have suggested references to the lunar landing module; another image is the grasshopper with its slim body and gangly legs.” -text: fosterandpartners.
“The frame of the Nomos table is conceived as a rigid, zoomorphic skeleton. … The Nomos table’s striking appearance and refined design have made it one of the most recognisable products of international design in the Tecno catalogue.” -text: Tecnospa.
