The Mesa Alma (which means "soul" in Spanish) table may seem rather simple, yet there is no need for special details since its main feature takes over every inch of its surface. Made out of wood, which is one of the most noble materials on our planet (a belief held by many, including the designer), the Mesa Alma table uses scraps rather than full planks of this treasured lumber.

Created by Brazilian designer Roberta Rampazzo, the use of wood scraps shows that there is beauty in everything that the trees have to offer, even down to its discarded bits. Encased in acrylic, Mesa Alma table looks as sturdy as it would be if it were crafted out of thick wooden blocks. Its contemporary look would fit into any home.
