Design Khodi Feiz, 2015
Powder-coat steel, oak wood
Made in The Netherlands by Artifort

"In a way, I like to see Artifort not as a company in the business of making furniture, but in the business of making history." -Khodi Feiz

Balans is a beautiful little table. "Balans complements the Artifort collection perfectly," says designer Feiz. "Balans has a design aesthetic that explores different colors, materials and finishes. You can use Balans as a stand-alone coffee table or to create a colorful collection of tables in your living room, which is an interesting alternative to using a bigger table. Balans will also look great in your bedroom as a classic side table for your bedside reading lamp."

Khodi Feiz was born in Iran. He graduated from Syracuse University in Industrial Design. After working for Texas Instruments Design Center and later joining Philips Design in the Netherlands, he founded feiz design studio with graphic designer Anneko Feiz - van Dorssen. They specialize in a variety of design fields. Their work has received numerous awards and has been featured in exhibitions and publications worldwide.

The Balans tables are offered in three sizes and feature a 4mm steel top powder-coated in a choice of a variety of colors. The column is oak wood in your choice of finish. Includes 5 felt glides that require assembly.

The foundations of Artifort were laid by Jules Wagemans. In 1890, he set up business as an upholsterer in Maastricht. His son, Henricus Wagemans, expanded the company into a furniture factory, which had a showroom in Amsterdam by the end of the 1930’s and was already well known nationally. The economic recession of the nineteen thirties forced H. Wagemans & Van Tuinen, as the furniture company was then known, to create a distinctive profile. The emphasis came to lie on functionality, comfort, and quality combined with aesthetically pleasing design and an innovative use of materials. The new brand name became Artifort, derived from the Latin word 'ars' meaning “art or knowledge”, and 'fortis' meaning “strong or powerful.”

High quality, but expected a glossy finish
, more than a month ago.
seems durable and well built. The texture of the metal isn't really what I expected, but may please someone else ...
