London Design Festival – Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby at Gallery kreo

The Hakone Table, sculptural and functional, has been inspired by the simplicity and elegance of Japanese joinery and is constructed from three large oak pieces. The heavy wooden elements play with concave and convex geometry and appear to float just above the ground. Due to these curves the table changes in appearance from different vantage points.

“We have always been admirers of beautifully made wooden objects. Inspired by Japanese carpentry we’ve seen on our travels in Japan, Hakone is constructed from generously proportioned and tactile forms which combine to make a highly functional table. Immaculately produced in France, Hakone is constructed using the finest European oak.”
