Iris Tables

Named for the circular, coloured rainbow in classical Greek mythology, Iris features five tables, each with its own radiant colour spectrum.

Each table in the Iris Edition series is constructed from a single geometric component, which is machined from solid aluminium to an extraordinary level of precision and repeated to form a perfectly tessellated ring.

Colour is integral to the design of the Iris series. To achieve the deliberate and exact variation of colour needed for each composition every segment is individually hand-dyed in anodizing tanks. Machining the segments from solid aluminium is the only way to enable the anodizing process as cast metal does not take on the colour in the same way.</p>

The composition of colours, whether a gradated run or series of sharp tonal differences, has been handpicked by Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby to capture the beauty of the colour chart in a three-dimensional form. Using circular forms means that the colour patterns are continuous with no starting point and no end.
