The base and legs of the tables are made from Peloponnesian Tortora marble, while the brown tabletops incorporate a sea plant that creates a natural pattern variation.

"The top of the tables are from the sea plant Posidonia Oceanica, one of the oldest living organisms on Earth," Alex Mint told Dezeen.

Informed by the sea breeze, the design of Oceanides aims to promote sustainability and earth preservation.

"In order to make living spaces greener, we are exploring the potential of natural materials in the creation of eco-friendly, modern furniture," said the brand.

"We try to follow the ecological guidelines by using eco-friendly, local materials and collaborating with Greek craftsmen to eliminate the energy consumption that goes into transportation."

Oceanides is available in the UK from Olson + Baker.
