The functionality, innovation and unique sculptural form of 'fable' is the result of the complete rethink of the side table for those that love to read.


The frame’s chamfered edges provide an effective means of storing literature whist marking the desired page. With integrated additional storage space and glass surface, a highly engaging, flexible and original product has been crafted.

'fable' challenges mainstream preconceptions of flatpack and modular furniture. The outcome of a design process where the manufacturing, storage & distribution process are just as important as the final product.
