eex indoor/outdoor occasional low table | design simone viola, 2018
X. A sound, a symbol, a meaning. All enclosed in a shape that is always recognizable by its intrinsic, essential stability. Rather than the mathematical variable, our reference is to the very archetype of a supporting structure, just like a circle would stand for a wheel. Eex presents a collection of contract tables that also have a certain vocation for domestic contexts, with square or round tops available in two heights and suitable for different uses: either as side or dining table, in the black, white or light gray finish, in which polypropylene and metal components blend into a single color. The top has no sharp corners or edges, and its shape is further emphasized by a light, elegant mirror-polished outline. A soft, rounded shape that lets water drops and dew slip away, free of any grooves and unnecessary decorations, ideal for a practical and comfortable use. The simplicity of its iconic shape allows for a perfect combination with all of the TOOU seats, creating ideal solutions both for indoor and outdoor applications.

Simone Viola was born in Mendrisio, Switzerland in 1985.
After a rigorous training in industrial design in Milan and through his collaboration during various architectural and design studies, he began to gain experience in Switzerland and abroad. In 2011, he founded the Simone Viola Design Studio, focusing on industrial projects for furniture and accessories. His philosophy leans toward research on the materials and technical aspects related to the development of the project, conceptually guided by historical and artistic references. This approach produces the most natural connection to contemporary design, where the object is not the expression of a trend, but a long-lasting fusion of form and the intended use. Soft, natural elegant shapes and an elevated attention to details characterizes his work and a continuous optimization of the development phase allows the realization of high quality and generously accommodating products.
TOOU is not just a producer. We strive to create objects through projects and a production that put people at the heart of things, all people. Our design is democratic, accessible and customizable.
Our dynamic design combines contemporary taste with the tradition of the great design schools of the twentieth century. We materialize projects where technology is deployed in the service of the end user, through optimized processes that produce comfortable, safe, and beautiful objects that are as aesthetically pleasing as they are practical.
Our primary aim is that each object is desirable, affordable and customizable, with a range of materials, shapes, and colors that can transform a mass-produced product into a highly personal one.
Our métier is creating objects that are durable in their design and aesthetics, and that are never superfluous accessories designed for facile consumption that is dominated by ephemeral trends.
Our items are everyday items that will become a familiar and comforting part of your day-to-day life, with features and profiles that will be the companion to your domestic environment.
TOOU, dedicated to you.
