Design shop Platform Wertel Oberfell in collaboration with Matthias Bar crafted this unique table for MGX/Belgium. This intricate table filled with detailed patterns of branches, stems and treetops was inspired by the growth patterns found in nature.

The Fractal table by Platform Wertel Oberfell begins with tree trunks that burst into a full forest. Using the aid of a manufacturing company, they were able to use computers to create the modern and elaborate table top.
