Designers Noon Studio of London and Avignon have designed a table with wooden legs pushed through its terracotta top.
Called Tripod, the project has a cantilevered top supported by three interlocking pieces of birch.
It requires no glue or fixings for assembly and can be flat-packed.
Here are some more details from Noon Studio:

Among all the actual ecological issues, we wanted to give another possibility for simple locally made furniture. Ceramic, terracotta, are timeless natural materials, and our approach was to give it a modern twist with this table. The table can be build without any screw driver or any other system to maintain the pieces between them
The cantilevering birch tripod legs system can be totally flatten. We are thinking that elaborated composite materials are not a necessarily way for a sustainable future. Designed and produced with philosophy of using honest materials, simplicity of execution, forward thinking and spatial awareness distinguish Noon Studio’s beliefs.
Noon studio is a London and Avignon based design office, created by two designers, Gautier Pelegrin and Vincent Taïani. One of us is working in London and the other in Avignon, but we are both from Avignon, and those two places influenced us in designing something which contain a certain respect for noble materials, artisans know-how, and an actual vision of our modern everyday life.
After studying together industrial product conception processes in the south of France (1999-2001) , they went their own way for five years before they decided to share their experiences creating new objects together.
A holistic generation able to work on varied types of projects (Architecture, products, graphics, photography, video, web...) Developed and inspired through their different experiences creating a new approach to furniture design articulated through the link between the object, person and space. Its materiality provokes tactile emotion and the concept of inner self.
Materials: Ceramic, Terracotta, birch
