Leading interior design brand Okha’s Laguna coffee table melds art, abstraction and application.
Entitled Laguna – the Spanish word for “pond” or “lagoon” – this piece was initially commissioned by ARRCC for Cheetah Plains, a luxury safari destination in Sabi Sands. Its meandering form and smooth black metal top are inspired by the still depths of a dark pond, making for a design that adds an element of mystery to any living space.
Laguna can be custom-made in a range of materials, including stone, metal, mirror and reinforced glass. As Okha Creative Director Adam Court explains, the legs and table body will always be made from two different finishes or materials, because each represents a different physical element. “The flat horizontal surface of the table (‘water’) is enveloped by the surrounding ‘landscape’ that rises above the surface,” he says.
