TRE chic and very sturdy

We've long been fans of Keiji Ashizawa, both as a product designer and architect, and we are particularly taken by his TRE sofa side-table for Duende.

On the compact side (42 x 42 x 47.5 cm), it has an intriguing way of supporting itself, with a single stem supporting the tabletop and its three legs spread out at angles low down its frame. It's a striking piece, made even more attractive by its delicate look but very sturdy construction — the tabletop and brackets are made of steel, while the legs are solid timber.
