'Taxing Art' is a compelling project that points out the flaws of the European customs regulations, and this 'Beta Tank' T228/89 chair and table converge at two consumer classifications.

Interestingly, when purchasing a piece of furniture, 19% tax is charged, compared to a significantly less 7% for a piece of art. Design Miami/Basel commissioned the 'Beta Tank' T228/89 movables for the 'W Hotels Designer of the Future Award,' inventing functional furnishings that become cheaper the moment they become purely aesthetic.
