The Mikado side table, designed by Alain van Havre, is not simply a smaller version of the Mikado dining table. It’s a complete reinterpretation of the larger designs of the dining table and a study of balance and symmetry.
Alain van Havre is Ethnicrafts in-house designer. The complexity of things has always intrigued him, which led him to study product development at the Design Academy of Eindhoven, The Netherlands. To him, all design embodies the same duality: the aim is to create a timeless product, yet with a hint to the specific moment in which it is made.
