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 minimalist, while stating that sometimes the only decoration needed is color.
The Platta tables may be thin, but are quite sturdy nevertheless. They are made from painted metal with colors that accentuate the simple but interesting form.
