Corocotta Table by Jason Phillips Design

Designed by Jason Phillips Design the Corocotta Desk is an idea that employs strong wooden finish cuts from furnishings manufacturing and hyperlinks them collectively in a twisting configuration that accepts a glass prime and can be utilized as a cocktail desk. Measuring 54x30x17h, the piece is supported by a metal armature that’s threaded by means of the cubes, offering a structurally sound type that defies gravity. The piece was influenced by the story of an historic warrior. Based on a number of historians, Corocotta was a Cantabrian warrior chief through the 1st century BC. His nice achievement was the union of the disperse Cantabri clans in an alliance towards the invading Roman armies, to the good exasperation of the highly effective empire.

He fought towards Rome from the years 29 BC to 19 BC. The Roman historian Dio Cassius relates the story of this robber who prompted quite a few difficulties for the Roman Military. Such was his fame that in the course of the marketing campaign of Emperor Augustus in Cantabria from 26-25 BC, a worth of 200,000 sestercii was placed on his head. To the emperor´s astonishment, none aside from Corocotta himself walked into the Roman camp, presenting himself and demanding the reward. In a gesture to Corocotta´s bravery, the Augustus let him go after granting him the cash. Lovely story …and delightful piece of furnishings.
