"The Couple Coffee Table was born out of my research into a traditional and essential piece of furniture — the coffee table. I wanted to come up with a new yet subtle take on its typical materials and typology. I was inspired by the materiality of fired earth like brick and terracotta, finding that a beautiful synergy occurs when it is combined with wood. I have always been drawn to texture and wanted Couple’s design to have an inherently tactile character produced by the grainy feel of the tile’s surface. The design allows you to choose between or combine tiles with a smooth surface or a soft wavy look. With these distinct materials, their finishes, and fine design details, Couple subtly merges a familiar piece of furniture with forward-thinking features.”
