Designed by Marc Thorpe for the Italian brand Moroso, the collection is called Morning Glory and is made from powder-coated welded steel rods for the stems and laser cut bent steel plates for the leaves.
The collection takes its name from the flowering vine that fills Thorpe's garden in New York.
"The Morning Glory project is a personal story," Thorpe told Dezeen. "My home garden in Brooklyn is covered in the vine. We live with it everyday. I'm inspired by the world around me and always look for what I like to call the modernism within."
While in real life the leaves of the vine would catch water, Thorpe said his leaves were designed to hold something stronger – "like beer".
Morning Glory is designed to be arranged in clusters. The tables come in a mix of autumnal and earth tones including forest green, burnt red and beige.
The table is on display in Pavilion 16 at the Salone Del Mobile in Milan until 13 April.
