If piet mondrian made tables instead.
At first glance the most amazing part of the Nzela table by Kayiwa, a Scandinavian design studio, might be its eye-popping Piet Mondrian-inspired color blocking, or it might be the fact that each person seated at the table gets their own private triangle of leg room, but in fact the most incredible feature is the assembly. The Nzela, which you can buy online, arrives at your doorstep fresh from Scandinavia in a big flat package. The long birch plywood rectangular components fit together like puzzle pieces by the slits cut midway through – another example of deceptive simplicity, something Scandinavia seems to have mastered. Of course, good design comes at a price and able DIY-ers might want to try their hand at making their own version of the Nzela before they fork over $17,400.
