Product description

Combining an oval table top with a dramatic crossed-leg frame, the Ovalette Table makes an elegant and striking addition to any room. The slim tapering legs evoke traditional Finnish design, while their diagonal setting draws the eye.

Ilmari Tapiovaara wanted to ensure that his designs were lightweight and easy to transport; to that end, the table top is made from birch plywood with either an oak or walnut veneer.

Concept

The low table serves any number of functions, from a place to set down coffee or leave small items to a storage or display surface. Low tables may be drawn alongside or within reach of beds, sofas, and lounge chairs, positioned at the centre or periphery of an interior. Drawing the gaze down, the low table can provide a focal point, a plane around which furniture may be grouped; alternatively, the low table is a superb supporting player. The Artek collection showcases a diverse selection of low tables and celebrates a wealth of design history.
