Concept

An ‘obi’ is a broad sash worn round the waist of a Japanese kimono. It is also the name of a group of islands in the Indonesian province of North Maluku. Dutch designer Roderick Vos has a love of all things Asian. His series of ‘Obi’ tables was in fact inspired by the shape of Balinese offering plates. Upscaling their size and simplifying the traditional silhouette led to what quickly became an iconic table.
