Our research started by looking to nature. The shapes of this tables takes inspiration from the shape of the stones that you can find on riverbeds. Than, together with the company we defined the right thickness of the marble in order to have reasonable price and weight.
We've designed the rounded edge with and asymmetrical curve in order to have a more natural look.
The main focus was to have a whole system of side table with an affordable price but a sophisticated look.
The materials selected and the overlapping feature gave this sophisticated look tat we were looking for.
