The naked table! The Vichy dining tables by the French duo BrichetZiegler flaunts a breathtaking tabletop aloft legs that seem to go on forever. The design casts aside the bland conventions that have, until recently, been hidden under flowing tablecloths. Today’s table designs have been laid bare by the trend for chefs to serve their creations on only the scantiest of placemats. Gingham fabric, or vichy in French, used to dress both people and tables for generations, lends the product more than just its name. This unmistakable pattern of squares has been replicated in oak, sycamore and walnut marquetry. Even if the restaurant shrouds the Vichy in a long table cloth, two slender solid oak legs will peak out cheekily, held in place by a shoe-like stand that will resist even the clumsiest of dates. BrichetZiegler The designers Caroline Ziegler and Pierre Brichet founded the BrichetZiegler studio in 2010. Their mission was to create a company that was open to reflection and dialogue, investigating new ways to approach ambitious projects in an artistic way. Working as interior designers, the pair has created spaces for numerous events of which the most distinguished was the Mobilario Nacional exhibition organized by the French ministry of culture. In the field of industrial design their most significant designs include outdoor products for Oxyo, urban furniture for Axurbain and shelves for Y’a Pas Le Feu au Lac (YPLFL). The Vichy table is their first piece for Sancal.
