One of two new tables designed by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec for Japanese furnituremaker Koyori, the Nei table plays a trick on the eye with its precision cutting and superb joinery techniques.
Crafted entirely from solid oak wood, Nei’s tabletop seems to nearly float on top of its legs, which are defined by a natural curvature that creates a slight gap between to the two components. This space appears as a parallel curve when seen from above and effectively disappears when approached head on.
The special design element by the Bouroullec‘s required highly skilled cutting and joinery for each part of the table, resulting in a familiar furniture piece with a completely unique expression.
Treated with a urethane finish for durability, the natural grain of the wood shines through and adds an organic yet sophisticated element to any interior setting.
The Nei table is available in a rectangular format in four sizes and also a single-sized round version.
