The Vondel Side Table by Lemon
Designed as a midpoint between a sculpture and an accessory, and suspended between design and art, the Vondel side table presents a sense of permanence and solidity – giving it a strong presence in a space. Structural integrity and strong lines offer a timeless silhouette, while its simplicity of shape and slim profile lend it perfectly to contemporary applications.
While the Vondel Side Table is fundamentally a functional piece, its form acts as a platform to show off the pattern and colour of the travertine and marble with which it’s constructed – with the design ultimately serving to hero the material. The simple planes and smooth surfaces highlight the natural beauty of the stone, paying homage to its textural richness.
Four sophisticated and strong, yet subtle finishes –Rosso Levanto, Verde Guatemala, Red and natural travertine channel a classically inspired palette while the piece’s versatility makes it thoroughly modern.
Lemon is a South African product and graphic design studio. Initially founded by brothers Kevin and Ricky Frankental in 2007 to fill a much-needed niche in custom print products and artworks, the company has expanded to include a growing repertoire of furniture, accessories and objects.
Drawing on its strong team of creatives (from illustrators to artists, photographers and designers) and suppliers, Lemon consistently drives innovative design through experimentation. A firm commitment to exquisite craftsmanship and execution sees these concepts to fruition, with the result a range of designs that speak to a discerning design lover with an appreciation for an elevated and internationally inspired aesthetic. This serves to position Lemon as an aspirational and yet accessible furniture and design brand.
