The Mikado dining table, designed by Alain van Havre, has been one of our most recognizable designs for years.
Its sculptural character is the result of a quest to find a balance between functionality and stability. Mikado’s legs interlock like a well-thought-out puzzle.
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.
