The slender Strips top is supported by two solid clamp structures: the metal bands run across the surface and down to the ground, where they meet in sophisticated embraces among the frames. The proportions are based on the statics of the item, while the uninterrupted expanse of the top produces visual equilibrium between the parts, adding a sense of lightness to the piece. There are square and rectangular versions in the collection. The top is made of plywood and reinforced with aluminium plates. The metal frame can be painted white to go with a white embossed, painted top or a top with a natural oak veneer, or it can be painted black to go with a top with a natural, wenge-coloured or grey oak veneer.
