Kaona, abbreviation of Kaonashi: meaning "no face" in japanese.
Kaona table arises as an investigation of circular and elliptical geometries through a very simple conceptual sequence of stretching transformations. An ellipse is obtained enlarging a circle, creating a bigger functional surface. By stretching four points of this new geometry four legs start to grow, becomming a new living object. By doing so, the dining area is conveniently lifted from the floor, solving it's structural and functional requirements.
