The design of the Pop table range brings a new perspective to its typology through its distinctive rounded legs that subtly extrude beyond the table top without being too intrusive, challenging traditional notions. 

The tables’ soft understated, yet bold aesthetic can be used in a multitude of settings as they can be effortlessly integrated into their surroundings or highlighted as sculptural pieces. Homes, retail stores, cafes, gallery lobbies and hotel rooms are some of the examples of potential settings.
