Here's a little more information from the designer:


Otto is a wooden base, glass top table designed for Miniforms.

This table reinterpretates the way of using tables, no more square or circle surfaces.

The organic shape of the tempered glass top creates a object that can be both used as dining table or office desk: a wide surface to work/design/dine or cook on.

The improbablye air of instability ot the wooden axis-symmetric base combined with the organic top creates a table that nearly seems a live creature to interact with.
