  • Contour Side Tables
    Brooklyn-based Bower is the parent of these beautifully muted Contour Side Tables. The collection sees a fusion of pastel type colours in the form of the tinted-glass table-tops contrasted against the crisp with white lacquer-painted table base. The pair is intended as a nesting set of support pieces for a space, where the arrangement and […]
  • Kanban
    Andrea Ponti‘s Kanban side table embodies the cultural contrasts of Hong Kong in a product. This industrial design piece purposely plays with formal expectations of shape, and turns them on itself. Weighted by a concrete and dense base, the table-top is comprised of charcoal coloured steel, which floats above its solid foundation. The idea that […]

  • Wire Side Table
    The Wire Side Table by Jamie Iacoli and Brian McAllister, heavily relies on geometry and it is the play of lines that I particularly like. The side table is made out of powder coated, stainless steel and is actually more decorative than practical I imagine. This minimalist furniture piece is available in various colours including […]

  • Funiture
    As a fan of New York-based practice Snarkitecture ever since their collaboration with fashion designer Richard Chai, I have been looking forward to their new installation in Chicago’s Volume Gallery, a series of everyday objects ‘confused’ in their original function, typical context and familiar materials, producing a collection of Fun. A lamp whose globe melts away […]

    Swiss born and Berlin based designer and architect Clemens Tissi recently developed his first furniture collection, comprising a number of cubic pieces. There was however, one piece in particular that caught my eye. That is the wonderfully minimal Lichtkiste light box, which serves both as a floor lamp and a side table. Initially showcased at […]
  • Nook
    The Nook sidetable is an apparently fairly simple and straightforward concept designed by Germany-based Lukas Franciszkiewicz… Yet it questions and challenges our very basic spatial conventions. We are used to have predetermined beliefs in placing our furniture. My aim was to create an object that demonstrates new ways of dealing with the relation between space and […]

  • Oak
    This is Oak, the result of an extracurricular, collaborative student workshop at Lund University School of Industrial Design, Sweden. The goal: to explore archetypes and stereotypes in the world of furniture. The group developed a range of independent pieces, but which are actually impressively coherent. Of course it helps that they’re all made from the […]
  • Platta
    The idea behind the three-legged Platta side tables was to make a table with as little material as possible, and use that to its advance in terms of aesthetics. That’s what Antti Pulli says, who designed Platta. Pulli is a Finnish industrial design student at Helsinki’s Aalto University. He adds: I wanted to leave it simple and […]

Organically shaped, light of weight and durable, ECAL is perfect as garden furniture, but the stool and side table would look amazing indoor as well. ECAL was conceived as part […]
  • Reading Table
    German designer Uli Budde combined a magazine rack with a side table, thus creating Reading Table. I could tell you how it works, but it’s perfectly self-explanatory – which may be the exact reason why I like it so much! Reading Table comes in two different sizes, and two colours: white and red. I’ll take […]
