Netherlands-based furniture designer Frederik Roijé was apparently inspired by tiered rice fields he saw during his travels for his new Tablefields. Manufactured in Holland from a single sheet of folded metal, Tablefields reminds us of the classic nesting tables made iconic by Bauhaus designers Breuer and Albers. We’re seeing more and more designers starting to craft the metal parts of their products from single sheets, and are loving how the constraints of the energy and cost effective manufacturing process have pushed designers into new directions.
Tablefield’s three-tiered top is mirrored with three lacquered ash legs. It’s available in four colors and we can’t decide which one we like best, classic black or white or one of the two pastel color choices, though we’re leaning towards the machine green.
