‘Vector’ is a Latin word that means ‘to carry,’ highlighting the simple function of the dining table. Tristan Lohner has created a beautiful piece of minimalist design in the Vector table, paring it back to the absolute limit to create a stylish and functional object. Lohner has also played with perspectives to add character to the design, using the shape of the aluminium base to add lightness to the design when viewed from the side.
Tristan Lohner’s career in interior design began under Bernard Daude, the cabinetmaker for Pierre Paulin for Mobilier National, France’s national repository of furniture.
After acquiring his Arts and Crafts diploma in cabinetmaking, Lohner studied product design in Paris under renowned designer Jean-Marie Massaud. An accomplished musician, he studied harmony and jazz piano at CIM Paris. Lohner imbues his work with paired-back honesty, exploring the intimate relationship between the object and its user. His playful designs are beautiful examples of contemporary design.
