Fernando Brizio’s ‘Target’ table is made from wood and arrows. Arrows are embedded into targets via a bow, making each table unique. In the end, once enough arrows have been shot, the target is taken down from the wall and flipped over, with the arrows functioning as the support legs for the table.
Fernando Brízio obtained his college degree in Equipment Design in 1996, at the Fine Arts Faculty of Lisbon, where he is based. Since 1999 he has been developing several product design projects, as well as setting design and exhibition works, for, among others, Details, Protodesign, Atlantis, M Glass, Droog Design, the choreographer Rui Horta, Modalisboa, DIM-Die Imaginäre Manufaktur, Intramuros, Fabrica, Schréder, Lux/Atalaia, Experimenta Design, and Cor Unum.
