Looking more like an elaborate piece of modern technology than a humble table, the Ramus M1 is a toughened glass-top held by an elaborate carbon fibre body with Aircraft grade aluminium alloy and stainless steel components.
“Ramus”, which means “tree branch” in Latin, originated from an idea that was first introduced in D Light at the Salone Satellite in 2011.
The Ramus M1 is an architectural sculpture piece which combines the strengths of carbon fibre together with the structural advantages that can be found in the branch of a tree, maximising its structural strength capacity.
Ramus M1 is the latest development and creation in the designer’s long-term study of efficient forms found in nature and his passion to design works with an architectural concept and through a “natural” method that maximises the material’s potential.
Ramus M1 is made of carbon fibre, which is also used in fighter jets, F1 cars and space shuttles.
Precision-engineered aircraft grade aluminium alloy and stainless steel components were also utilised.
