A pair of small characterful side tables made in two different ways, both with hand-drawn circular tops. Designed to capture the spirit and magic of Japanese joinery and to appear more hand-made than machine made. They are low and ideal for placing next to a sofa or lounge chair, they are also small enough to live on a table, a shelf or a windowsill, and ideal to place all manner of objects on. First made as part of a special anniversary collection of furniture by Ishinomaki Laboratory, the Japanese DIY furniture company founded in the immediate aftermath of the 2011 Great Eastern Japan earthquake and tsunami. Then put into production by London-based British furniture brand, SCP.
