Two matching coffee tables with wooden top and chromium plated metal base formed in an astounding reduced but impactful way. Designed by Danish designer duo Preben Fabricius and Jørgen Kastholm. Manufactured by Bo-Ex. The duo created influential designs of the 1960s such as the Scimitar and the X Chair which resembles Mies van der Rohes Barcelona Chair. They devoted themselves to the optimization of shape, material and ergonomics. Danish Hans Wegner is another time companion that has had a visible impact on their designs. Many of their pieces have managed to become modern icons.
