VITRA CORK FAMILY SIDE TABLE.
Design by Jasper Morrison.
The Cork Family from Vitra is a wonderful collection of side tables made entirely of natural cork. Designer Jasper Morrison gave the Cork Family tables clear, geometric shapes with vertical, horizontal and diagonal lines that contrast vividly with the natural hues and velvety cork surface. Thanks to the lightweight and durable properties of cork, the tables can also be used as stools.
Model A, B, C: Height: 33 cm. Diameter: 31 cm.
