December 14 in the capital's salon Roche Bobois on the street. Smolensk, d. 7, there was a presentation of the Speed Up collection, which was presented by the author designer Sasha LakikSasha Lakik (Sasha Lakic) became famous by creating motorcycles for YAMAHA and KAWASAKI. This was followed by avant-garde bikes for the company MBK INDUSTRIE, and later - concept cars, developed by order of the company VENTURI. For a French furniture company ROCHE BOBOIS in 1996, he invented the Onda furniture collection, and in 2005 he introduced a new Speed Up collection. “I have long paid attention to the fact that a car that stands still and a car in motion look different. I wanted to convey this feeling of speed in furniture design,” says the designer. Table from the Speed Up collection Sasha Lakik created the same way as a car: first molded a plastic model, then scanned this object and made it a virtual model. The base of the table, more precisely, its most acute part, which accounts for the greatest weight, is made of carbon fiber - a very lightweight and durable material used in the automotive industry. "The next step in the design of furniture will be made when a new technology appears. For example, I would like to create a chair without legs - a seat made of leather that would float in the air" - dreams Sasha Lakik.
