Designers Explore Rippled Effects in Tables, Lamps, and Chairs

Wavelike forms are washing up everywhere, from furniture to fixtures.

Encouraging a tactile escape from the ever more digital world, Robert Sukrachand’s Coved Torus table boasts a scalloped ash stave base bisected by smooth bronze glass. The structure references classical architectural columns as well as the less, ahem, authentic iterations found today: “I was inspired by the faux Doric columns that often line the porches of suburban houses and wanted to bring those graphic elements to life in a refined piece of furniture,” the New York designer/woodworker says. The resulting design is like a fidget spinner for the sofa set. Scroll down for more wavy, fluted forms.
