Some forms are omnipresent or, at least, generally recognized. These archetypal forms, however simple they may seem, often bring about innovating results when taken out of their original context and used as a new point of departure for furniture design.
By playing with dimensions in his graduation project Schaal n°1, Casimir spurred confusion on the form of the dish and its supposed function. Does this dish remain a dish or is it a table? Eventually, it is up to the user to decide whether Schaal n°1 should be a dish, a side table, … or simply an object.
Schaal n°1 is a segment of a hollow solid wooden sphere and has an arched bottom. Thanks to its weight and its lowered center of gravity however, Schaal n°1 is very stable. A soft floor can increase its stability. And with the three included pegs it can be stabilised on all types of floors.
