John Brauer founded Essey around the concept of using symbolism or metaphors to promote a given function or the inner nature of an object. This “symbolic functionalism” is the heart of Essey’s design philosophy.
Illusion is a timeless statement of beauty, simplicity and functionality. "One day I was passing a Café in Copenhagen. There were round tables with white tablecloths. Each cloth was square and almost touched the floor. I stopped and took couple photos. I then went to a plastic workshop, showed them the image and asked if it was possible to make such an object in plastic. The answer was no. But I continued my quest and after a few months some samples were ready. The result was Illusion, a stunning example of Symbolic Functionalism that has received an extremely enthusiastic reception from both the press and consumers." John Brauer.
All Illusion tables are hand made and all are unique.
