Fortress is the name of a metal table that looks much more delicate than such a description would entail. Taking on an airy, fan-like aesthetic that is far removed from the heaviness of the material at hand, the metal table collection introduces a sculptural addition to the home. This form, however, is also very jagged since the edge of each metal table is made up of laser-cut strips bent to create each pedestal silhouette.

Available in two sizes, the Fortress metal table can be lacquered in various colors. Overall, they are bold and shiny in a way that feels more decorative than functional. Yet they are meant to be used as traditional tables would be in the home.
