like his solid maple table lamps and light fixtures, montreal-based designer loïc bard ‘tokyo table’ focuses on simple aesthetics and functionality by incorporating a playful and considered storage void into its internal structure. designboom spotted the storage table at the toronto interior design show (IDS) 2014 coated with a white natural oil finish, the maple table references childhood memories from a trip to japan and the ambiance of the winter rain. ‘I designed this coffee table while remembering the sober atmosphere, the simple utensils and the rustic environment of the tea ceremonies,’ explains bard. ‘[the tokyo table] focuses on a simple aesthetic: the discreet compartment is ideal for stashing books, laptops, magazines and newspaper entirely out of sight,’ he adds.
