Breakfast, lunch, dinner. If we suddenly found ourselves without clocks, we would be able to mark time according to the conventions we have built around these three moments of the day. Shifting to fit in with habits and latitudes, they have a common root that is stronger than the need for nourishment: sociability.
Grace is designed to enhance this. Attractive at first glance, its broad, rectangular top, elongated and bevelled at the ends to gently take on a hexagon shape, rests on a single, solid central support; in the comfortable fluidity of its barrier-free perimeter, there is that sense of conviviality that invites guests to enjoy light conversation and the pleasure of getting together.
Observing it, we notice the signature details of its creator, Christophe Delcourt, that form its identity card. He himself ironically tells us to look under the table. “A succession of solids and voids, curves and arches, elements that catch the light and add stylistic importance to the part to which we tend to give least consideration.” A tribute to architecture in its most abstract expression, in that role of discipline that brings humans into dialogue with space.
And so, from the centre to the outside, Grace acts as a sounding board for the room. The lines it traces appear to be those of an ideal city, a microcosm of perfect proportions. The solid brushed oak, available in caramel, anthracite and tobacco shades, allows Baxter to apply all its savoir-faire in an exercise of style spanning from the form to the very life of the material. Wood is the bearer of an ancient message, of tradition and wisdom that become design: by nature, it will change with us, taking on the beauty that only time can give to the objects with which we dress our everyday lives.
