I met Marc Nicolson, during the Food, Wine and Design Fair. He has many wonderful and interesting ideas about design. I especially enjoyed learning about the trestle tables. Marc along with Lyall Sprong, form the collaborative effort called, Thing King, which specialize in “Product Design, Furniture Design, Concept, 3D Visualisation and clear thingking”.
I asked them a few questions and this is what they answered:
What do you create, under the label Thingking?
We work as object designers via “thingking”, for clients. While we collaborate on furniture under our own names.
Please tell us more about the trestle table?
What do you enjoy the most about design?
It is concurrent with your world view.
Form follows function but I believe… Martino Gamper
