Arbol Table

The Árbol collection features a system of central joining that imitates the trunks and branches of trees, where the strength of the whole comes from distributing the work amongst all the limbs. The dining table uses the same joint for all legs, with three pieces each.

Canasta Bowl

Keep your plums where you can see them in this transparent glass Canasta bowl by Emiliano Godoy. The Mexico City–based designer collaborated with Nouvel Studio to utilize factory casts that were no longer in use, eliminating the need to manufacture entirely new molds and giving a beautiful second life to those that otherwise might have remained idle. This piece is a real beaut, and comes available in aqua (pictured), ruby, topaz, clear, and yellow.
