Japanese design studio Nendo has yet again released a minimally executed and elegant piece of home furniture with the 'Border Table.'

Consisting of only a thin square metal rod and a small round platform, this unique table was made to specifically adapt to what the studio defines as "troublesome" elements of design. Areas like corners, walls, columns and floors that would normally be under-utilized are instead occupied by the "Border Table' in a way that uses very little volume of the room itself.

Nendo describes its design as "parasitizing" elements of the space into its own structure without filling out and ultimately defining the ultimate use of a room. This minimal project then becomes an interesting exercise in both space management and home furniture design.
