eliumstudio: express side tables

at the crossroad of a ‘ready-made’ and a ‘do-it-yourself’ process, anyone can create this side table by combining standard components, with little means, in little time. light and easily transportable, it finds its place by a sofa, an armchair or a bed. its durability allows for outdoor use as well. its structure is reduced to its simplest expression: a lampshade frame and a tray that are assembled together with a rope. because of the simplicity of the materials, a wide range of colors and shapes are available.

the ‘express’ side tables by paris-based eliumstudio was shown ‘now! le off’ during at paris design week 2011.
