Using raw and natural materials is one of the best ways to create a timeless design, yet this wood and concrete side table typifies an enduring style with a modern and poetic combination of materials. Wood and mixed cement come together separately to complement the other's forms and establish a beautiful balance that epitomizes a lasting style of the 20th century.

The Freddie Side Table is made up of a dark walnut box with two open sides, capable of holding a variety of items, from books to decorative objects. In comes the industrially cast concrete then, covering the upper panel and one of the sides. The delicacy of this composition makes for a wonderfully balanced piece of furniture, despite the asymmetrical relationship of its components. And while this wood and concrete side table is rather minimalist, it affords engagingly different views from different angles.
