tête a tête

tête a tête

tête à tête is part of a series of dining rooms that explores the relationship between table and chair.
In this way the project gravitates between the user-activated state in which the pieces of furniture are separated from one another, and the inert state in which tête à tête remains motionless performing another function, this time as a volumetric object.
The variation between the open and closed condition of the set flows smoothly since the two chairs tongue-and-groove with the table, in an allegory of a conversation between two people.
tête à tête has been manufactured by hand in banak wood and mdf by Alejandro Pérez, a Mexico City-based woodworker. This series of furniture is developed in small productions, in dialogue with urban woodworkers.
