Jonathan Nesci, ‘3-Quarter Table’, 2011, Patrick Parrish Gallery

The 3-Quarter Table is one piece in Nesci’s “Nine Variations”, a series of seamlessly crafted forms designed using the geometric guidelines set forth by the Golden Ratio, a proportion long-valued for its inherent aesthetic quality.

About Jonathan Nesci

Jonathan Nesci designs furniture with a clean, minimalist aesthetic. “I am informed by the work that has preceded me and aim to add a building block in the continually changing landscape of product and process,” he says. The founder of HALE, an industrial design company based in the American Midwest, Nesci produces (usually matte-finished) monochrome pieces in industrial materials like concrete and metal. He derives his simple forms—as in the pieces from his “The New” series—from the observation of banal everyday designs; for “Nine “Variations” he created a line of polished aluminum shelves, chairs, and tables from elemental geometric shapes. Nesci’s Library Bookcase, a minimalist, partitioned wall shelf, won Wallpaper’s annual design award.
