A glass tabletop assembled without the use of glue, screws, nails or dowels is no easy feat; especially if you're modeling the table after the designs of Shigeru Ban.

For ITZ Mayan Wood Furniture, Ania Wolowska has designed the table with the help of master carpenters from Bacalar, Quintana Roo. The form is based on joinery techniques that highlight the subtle beauty of how joints work together.

The glass table keeps the joints visible while its over all look is light and airy, and thanks to its high-quality construction, the table is collapsible for easy packing and transport as well.

A table as clean as this utilizes interlocking joints to hold it together, while the glass is simply rested on top.
