The OCD Table by Esrawe comprises a series of small trays for storing individual items to keep them separate from one another and easy to find.

OCD (obsessive-compulsive disorder) is an anxiety disorder that can cause the sufferer stress if possessions are disorganised or not arranged in a specific way.

"The piece allows you to catalogue/organise the everyday items that you use the most," said studio founder Héctor Esrawe. "The objects that are placed into the table reflect a partial image of the personality and also gives you a glimpse of the activity of the person that uses it."

"A musician will have certain type of objects, a designer others etc," he added.

Circular, rectangular and square sections in various sizes are designed to hold objects of different shapes and dimensions. Each has a lip to prevent the contents falling out.

The trays are supported by legs that are interconnected at staggered heights.

The OCD Table is available as a limited edition of ten pieces in brass or an open edition in iron coated with electrostatic white paint.

Two sizes have already been designed with the arrangement of trays fixed, but the studio hopes to expand the options to include custom layouts.

"Every set is the same at the moment, but we are planning to open different configurations in the near future," said Esrawe.
