the polar nesting table debuted at the recently concluded milan furniture fair. designed by tokyo-based nendo for the scandinavian company swedese, the table seems deceivingly simple yet the 'wow' lies on the glass tops. each glass panel is laminated with polarized film that produce light or dark floral patterns depending on how the tables are rotated when they nest. the bases are finished in an ebonized lacquer finish.
the top photo shows a set of table, bench and stool seating in laminated, oiled oak also from swedese and designed by naoto fukasawa.
