Tables and stools are made by converting iron into an organic, fluid form.

Metal-organic stool and table

The SUITE FURNITURE series was created in an attempt to overturn the conventional knowledge of sheet metal processing by converting iron into an organic and fluid form. The stool consists of two steel plates with a thickness of only 2 mm. You can choose from three colors: black, cream white, green, and lemon yellow. The complexity of a simple product makes it ideal for indoor or outdoor settings.

The gray or cream-white unique look of the table, on the other hand, is made of a thin steel top plate and smooth curved legs. Just like its funky look, it can be used in a variety of situations such as PC work, drinks, display stands, and more.
