Concept

/ After the debut in the Home collection, Edward Barber & Jay Osgerby design Tobi-Ishi Outdoor, the outdoor version of the iconic round dining table clearly inspired by Zen. The design duo are great enthusiasts of Japanese art and culture, and the name and inspiration come from the smooth stones (tobi-ishi) used as ornaments in traditional Zen gardens. The overhang of the table and the vertical trapezoidal bases set at right angles generate an essential sculptural figure that appears to change shape depending on the point of observation. Exclusively made of cement, Tobi-Ishi Outdoor comes in two colour variants, grey and anthracite.
