Made from a single slab of the most richly grained Burr Elm and finished with five pairs of burnished and lacquered copper legs it will make a stunning centre piece in any contemporary living space.

The Biomorph #1 table was featured in the ‘Design Report’ section of April 2016’s World of Interiors magazine:
