the new ‘hiroshima’ small table, fits easily into any room, and matches the accompanying ‘hiroshima’ small chair    that was presented earlier this year. it is available in two widths; an 85 x 85 cm square or 130 x 85 cm rectangle. the radius of the curved line that connects the table leg and apron, match that of the small chair’s curved line, seen in the corner of which the leg and the seat’s top rail connect.

the new flanno fabric used to upholster the seating pieces of the ‘hiroshima’ series is made from 100% wool in denmark. the difference between the existing ‘mix flanno’ fabric (made in japan), is the six color variations: green, orange, bordeaux, deep green, brown and navy, which are now available. these shades are born from two kinds of sheep’s wool (mountain sheep’s dark brown wool and bright white wool), which are mixed together carefully and then dyed.
