The Column trestles are designed by Danish OeO Studio, internationally recognized for both design and interior design.
With its white, marble-like surface and hints of gold and silver, the surface of the Column Table reveals fragments of yoghurt silver foil that draw us in and reveal the plastic’s unique recycling story. The table stocks in two types of tabletops; white recycled yoghurt containers and black recycled packaging waste.
