A 1660

DesignJames Irvine, 2004

Organic in its shape, well-proportioned and reduced to a minimum

Organic in its shape, well-proportioned and reduced to a minimum. The details make this table something special. The exciting contrast between wood and metal, the elegantly curved lines of the tabletops, and the edges of the tabletop that are beveled towards the bottom make the table look lightweight and clear. With their diverse forms and dimensions and the broad selection of tabletop surfaces they can be used in many ways: in homes, restaurants and cafés, as well as meeting rooms.


Single-column table with round or square tabletops, in diverse dimensions. Star base in polished aluminium, chrome-plated steel column.
