Designed by Olivier Dollé, the Angkor collection draws inspiration from 12th century temples at Angkor Wat in Cambodia, where roots and branches climb the walls. Dollé’s interpretation reimagines Angkor as a contemporary table with contrasting natural and stained wood. The tree-shaped component is made of birch, while the rest of the table is made of oak, a difference which, combined with the contrasting shades and angles of the grain, echos the temples’ blend natural and manmade elements. The Angkor table projects timeless questions about the relationship between people and their surroundings onto a modern domestic form, available as a coffee table, a dining table, or a writing desk with white, brown, or black veneer.
