A sobre form that resembles the petals of a cherry tree
"in flower" (in Japanese "Saita"), this table uses iron and its
intrisic properties as a the key element of the design. Inspired
by the art of origami, the iron supports of the table are
created by bending iron sheeting as if it was paper. To
communicate a sense of warmth and tactile desire the iron
surface has been treated to give a rusty finish. The design is
also available as a coffee table and screens.
