Working on the threshold between art and architecture, Tom Van Malderen brings a playful, bespoke element to a rigid and linear structure in the driTT designer collection. The collection was designed with the production process in mind, as the intricate, automated machines use advanced panel-cutting technology to minimise waste, resulting in a collection that is both simple and sophisticated.
driTT — which means ‘straight’ in Maltese — introduces the pleasure of play into the rational language of industrial production, resulting in functional sculpture, where pleasure is merged with the pragmatic. Through this creative approach to straight-cut panels, driTT presents a set of exclusive designs for tables and shelving systems that can be adapted to suit every living space and bring out one’s individual style.
Tom Van Malderen is a Malta-based artist and architect whose work ranges from buildings to furniture, installations, and exhibition design. He purposely layers the intersections between art, design, and architecture to have a close look at the many ways environments are being used, and more specifically, the objects resulting from that use. His projects reflect his fascination for the construction of social space, and the material gestures of everyday design.
From a philosophical standpoint, tables play a central role in our homes and our lives. We learn, laugh, work and grow around tables. We bring families and friends together around tables. We make life-changing decisions around tables. With all this in mind, driTT presents a series of coffee tables and dining tables that are available in different sizes, compositions and finishes, to provide the ideal setting for life’s most meaningful moments.
The designer driTT collection also features a modular and functional shelving system, built on key design principles, playfully working with lines and shadows to add character to a room. This flexible shelving system adapts to the shape of any space and comes in a range of colours to suit any personality and style. Every corner of this system has a purpose, allowing you to express yourself by creating your own personalised display.
