We are proud to announce that our Colossus table received the prestigious award Furniture of the Year, in 2020 years edition of Swedish Design Award by RUM.
A troubled political climate and a sense of growing dissatisfaction and disenchantment around the world sparked the idea for Colossus. Massproductions’ co-founder and head designer Chris Martin wanted to create an open meeting space that brings people together; a place for round table discussions, where each participant’s voice carries the same weight and where disagreements can be resolved.
“I wanted to create a product that is the exact opposite to all the feelings of discontent in the world. I came up with the idea for a massive, solid round table as the world seems especially chaotic right now and that many people are disgruntled. The world needs big tables that bring lots of people together,” explains Chris Martin, co-founder and head designer, Massproductions.
In Greek, Colossus means a statue of gigantic size and unsurprisingly, the table Colossus is, to say the least, impressive in size. The smallest version of Colossus, measuring 1.8 meters in diameter, accommodates 12 people around the table. The table’s solid base is made in concrete.
