Normann Copenhagen Designs Tables Fit for a Game of Chess

Although it looks like a piece from a chess game played by giants, Bit is, in fact, an indoor/outdoor table (or stool or pedestal) that is ever at the ready for a vase of flowers, a novel, or an unexpected guest. Designer Simon Legald wanted to create something that satisfied not only functional needs but also psychological and aesthetic ones, too.

He was inspired by monoliths and columns, transforming their clear-cut forms into something both bold and multipurpose. The 17-inch-tall piece is made entirely of low-density polyethylene industrial waste, and the pixelated coloration owes to small bits of the recycled materials. Available in multiple colorways, with or without sprinkles. Through Allsteel.
