RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The basic idea for a Leaf table is a simple principle - the shape of the base and the shape of the plate are continuous forms, which follow each other - one form is transferred into the second form. The plate is square, from which two corners are removed - instead of corners are inserted quarters circles. This results in a leaf shape, which is accompanied by plastic decor - abstracted leaf motif drawings. It's a simple graphic symbol from which it is derived form also base table. Natural motives and basic shapes - a square and a circle.

CHALLENGE:
Intention - a product for mass production. For use indoors and outdoors.
