Fold by Patrick Norguet for Modus

‘The FOLD table by Patrick Norguet is an elegant, sculptural piece, reminiscent of the unfolding of a flower. Created from laser cut, folded steel to form a seamless base with a satin, powder coat finish. The rounded edged top is available in matching powder coat or clear toughened glass. Available in three sizes and five colours’

‘Till death do us part’ by Martino d’Esposito & Franck Bragigand for droog

Endless Nile Dining Table by Karim Rashid for Amr Helmy Designs

‘The Endless Nile table is inspired by the slow and perpetual flow of the Nile river. This new design, while inspired by the past, deconstructs conventional table and seating concepts to recombine them in an original and contemporary solution.’

Arborism by Nosinger for Covo

‘A small table made in powder-painted metal, which overturns the concept of the artefact: in the legs, generated by the same geometry which regulates nature, the “frattali”, and in the surface printed with small falling leafs. Like an object left in the influence of nature changing its aesthetics.’

Slicebox by voonwong & bensonsaw for decodelondon

‘A square coffee table is divided by random cuts. These differ from timber tabletop and base, separated by uprights. The subdivided pieces serve as side tables of different shapes and dimensions.’

FurnID Table by FurnID + Ronnau

‘FurnID has created a table that will bring an extra dimension to the private dinner situation and create the best possible conditions for an equal communication. The table is created so the shape and expression is inviting and so it offers the same social qualities as an ordinary round table. The position of the legs means that no one can be placed at the end of the table and a hierarchical seating of the users is therefore not possible. Furthermore the four sides are curved creating a more intimate space where the communication possibilities are equal for all 8 users. The form of the table is repeated in a smaller scale as a groove in the center of the table top. The groove is a direct reference to the fact that people have always gathered around something; a point of focus, the camp fire, the totem pole, – and in this case the meal!’

Cupola Reading table by BarberOsgerby for Meta

‘Reminiscent of the brief yet magnificent trend of glass furniture in the 19th century, this reading table is made of seven hand-blown glass elements variously nested and joined atop the other. The apparently solid base of the reading table is in fact glass. the internal stem used to encase the light is of opaline white glass followed by a section of spiralled white and clear mezza filigrana providing a fine tracery as a filter for light, and finally a third section of coloured glass which rings the top outer edge. The outer dome used for Cupola’s namesake top is blown from a single gather of glass and is at the very limit of what is physically possible. the table is mirror-polished, cast white bronze, and the base is Belgian marble.’

Nanook Table by Philippe Bestenheider for Moroso

Nanook- Moroso

‘Nanook is the result of Philippe Bestenheider’s ongoing research into such aspects as fragmentation, molecular structures, the transition from 2-D to 3-D. The painted steel table can be attached horizontally to a second table or stacked vertically to create a two-shelf arrangement.’
