Aoyama, a neighbourhood in Tokyo known for its fashion houses, restaurants and shopping, is where the Danish-French designer Paul Leroy found inspiration for his Aoyama Table series.
The nearly transparent base column in laser-cut steel plate, giving the table it's visual lightness and characteristic traits, supports the round table top of either a dining table or lounge table in a range of sizes. The Aoyama Table is a simple, functional, multi-purpose design that can be used alone or in conjunction with additional tables.
Paul Leroy (1960 - ) studied architecture, furniture design, graphics and industrial design at the Royal Danish School of Architecture and served an apprenticeship with Professor Tage Borg. He opened his own design studio in 1987.
His many international clients include Norman Foster, Foster and Partners, Daimler Chrysler, Arthur Andersen and Copenhagen Airport.
