the oly table echoes the design of the oly stool – it has a wishbone brace joining the legs, ergonomically situated below the table surface of 3 wooden planks with the characteristic inverted edge detail.
the asymmetry of the design from certain angles gives the table and stool an unusual tension and the triangulated base creates nesting alcoves for the stools to inhabit when not in use.
