Botanist No Ornamentation End Table
DescriptionThe Botanist No Ornamentation End Table was designed by Claude Zellweger in 2008. The No Ornamentation series comments on the systematic overuse of ornamentation in contemporary furniture. The resurgence of decorative elements has been a welcome change from the unflinching minimalism of the early 2000s but it has also given birth to an array of products that have used such ornamental surface treatments merely to cover up their mediocrity. The No Ornamentation End Table is formed from a quarter-inch aluminum alloy sheet, making it durable yet lighter than you might expect. The No Ornamentation End Table is then finished with a powder coating that is solvent-free and comprised of various synthetic resins, pigments and special additives for a high quality surface finish. These economic and ecological powder coatings represent the future of paint technology. The powder coatings are UV and weather resistant intended to be used outdoors. These benches are corrosion resistant so they are welcome in a damp environment and look great in a garden or around the pool.

Design BenefitsA percentage of the sale of the No Ornamentation lline goes to Architecture for Humanity. Zellweger states, Its obvious that the world we live in is not a balanced one. How can we - the lucky ones - enjoy our prosperity when it seems unattainable to others? Giving is one of many avenues to address that biggest of problems. Architecture for Humanity has proven that good design can directly benefit those in immediate need - due to displacement, poverty or catastrophe.
