ZOOM COLLECTION: CONICAL LEGS24 September 2020
At La Fabrique, we have been working on the design and manufacture of these feet for over a year. We absolutely wanted to rediscover finesse, elegance and solidity of the conical foot which rained so much in the second part of the previous century.
Because yes, a piece of furniture with a mess does not have the same soul as a piece of furniture without a mess, where every object has its place. Dare the mess in your interiors, dare to photograph your interiors with a cushion on the floor, a newly abandoned child's toy, dried flowers from your ancestors, a breakfast abruptly interrupted ... Your only requirement is to bring objects that make sense (a personal story or not) and to create furniture that has style and that is more than furniture. The tapered foot can help you do this by leaning the feet against:
- old obsolete trays
- a light wood tray
- a freshly cut tree board
- a tray salvaged from a broken stool
- a tray salvaged from a broken stool !
Under an old wooden top or even a noble stone top, the conical legs are a must in the decoration of the 50s and 60s . Under a formica top, the conical foot was a must in the 70s. It was then very often declined in wood. But often coarser, it is difficult today to find conical steel feet. And yet steel allows it to rediscover all its finesse, elegance and design.
The conical shape inspired the greatest designers like Jean Prouvé and the conical foot conquered the majority of the interiors of the second part of the previous century. This dual use, which speaks to us a lot, we who want to make the beautiful accessible to all, has definitely convinced us on the desire to bring them out of our workshop..
A MULTI-PURPOSE STYLE
The conical foot survives the years and is definitely a timeless accessory, which can adapt to every interior and every use indefinitely. At the heart of a bistronomic restaurant, it can bring a retro side but also chic. In a coworking space, it brings transparency, design and a lot of lightness. At a private home and associated with an old mottled wood tray, it brings the retro piece that everyone dreams of! And finally, don't forget, it has a vintage feel that very few bases have !
For a retro, vintage, minimalist or even Scandinavian look, the conical foot will be perfect to support all types of furniture. Do not hesitate to add conical legs to several pieces of furniture in the same room. With its fine lines, it will not weigh down your decor but will on the contrary make it more coherent. It will just be a matter of changing the color of some feet.
Thanks to the steel, our conical feet are very strong and resistant. Each foot is equipped with a 3mm thick plate made up of 4 fixing holes.
To ensure perfect stability of the whole, adapt the attachment system (hinge screw, screw + bolt, lag screw, etc.) to each support. This is the best way to have a strong and stable set.
The position of the foot in relation to the platform is your choice . If you want the feet to be visible, for it to be a strong element of your decoration, do not hesitate to bring the feet between 5 and 10 cm from the corner of the top. Thus they will give a strong identity to your creation. If you want them more discreet in your project and less annoying (especially to avoid bumping into them), you can fix them up to 20 cm from the corner.
The conical feet can be adapted to all types of tops. Being made of steel, they will be able to support trays weighing up to 150 kilos. To ensure perfect stability, we do not recommend using them on trays larger than 100cmx180cm.
Marble, glass, stone, (…) are materials that you increasingly want to use with our feet. There is no "miracle" attachment for this type of media. Some glues suitable for marble and stones are very efficient. However, we encourage you to contact a craftsman or us directly for sound advice depending on the type of materials chosen..
The conical legs are available from 15 cm to 110 cm. They allow you to raise furniture (15cm), to create low tables (30cm and 40cm), to create high tables (110cm) or high tables (90cm), to enhance a buffet (15cm or 30cm) or even to design a small or large dining table (71cm).
They are available in our 4 historic colors: White, Black, Copper and Gold. We can also leave them raw.
Soon we will make them available to measure, it will be possible to choose the height of the foot to the nearest cm. Enough to definitively satisfy each of your projects.
Each foot is protected by a reinforced polyethylene (PE) end cap. It is black or white depending on the color of the foot.
