The designer behind the KONNO COFFEE- & SIDE TABLE, Japanese Hiromichi Konno, always strives to pursue the aesthetic aspect of his designs, not only visually but also sensuously.
With this design philosophy, he has created the KONNO COFFEE- & SIDE TABLE, as an exciting merge between Japanese and Danish design traditions. The table legs consist of thin, black steel tubes that gently support the beautiful table top in either solid wood or Black Marquina marble, and the contrast between the various materials gives an attractive and unique expression. The table is available in both a square, rectangular and round version, and can be used for many purposes. The square and round versions are ideal both as coffee table and side table next to a sofa or a lounge chair, and the rectangular table makes a fine storage unit.
