Animal Tables by Hella Jongerius

Designer Hella Jongerius will exhibit a collection of tables featuring giant animals at Galerie Kreo in Paris next week, alongside the Artificial Flowers in our previous story.


The collection will be a series of three tables including animals, made from a variety of materials and finishes.


Frog Table (above) is a solid, walnut wood table with a frog appearing to climb onto one corner. The frog is partly coated in blue, transparent enamel.


Turtle Coffee Table (below) is a small, multi-coloured coffee table in the shape of a turtle, with a resin fruit bowl on top if its shell.


The range also includes a small, leather-covered coffee table that incorporates a porcelain vase, called Snail Table.


The collection comprises a limited edition of eight numbered and signed pieces.


Called Natura Design Magistra, the exhibition also includes Jongerius' Artifical Flowers (see our previous story). It will open this Saturday and continue until May 30th.
