Jon Gasca has learned much from his father, Jesús, founder and principal designer of Stua (solo tengo un amor, or “I have only one love”), including the patience for developing an idea. When he first saw the prototype for his Eclipse Nesting Tables (2009), he wondered: “Will it make an impression on people? And will it be enjoyed for a long time?” For this organically shaped set of modular tables – and all the other items Stua creates – the answer to those questions is “yes.” Eclipse Nesting Tables are each a different shape and height, allowing for endless configurations. The smaller ones can be concealed under the larger and brought out when more tabletop space is needed. Simple assembly required. Made in Spain.
The multicolor set includes a large oak table, medium walnut table and small wenge table.
"We try to make simple products that people will love for a long time," says Jon Gasca, designer and art director for Stua, his family's furniture business in San Sebastian, Spain. By "simple," he means neither "ordinary" nor "plain," but quite the opposite - Gasca ensures that Stua designs combine precision and balance to provide extraordinary function and beautiful form. "We really like people to buy our furniture, not for us to sell it," he explains. "So our main aim is to make it attractive enough for people to come to us." Read more >
