Flexibility is what the contemporary lifestyle demands and this somewhat retro-looking Cubis Coffee Table certainly delivers. Its design is reminiscent of the de Stijl furnishings from around 1920 yet it fits in impeccably with current tastes.

This is in part due to the fascination with vintage objects and it goes hand-in-hand with the cyclical popularity of historical styles. What makes this set of pieces particularly iconic is its rigid rectangular forms, its fine supportive structure, its exaggerated planes and its punchy blocks of color. It's the sort of pair you could find in the Schroder House or in a brand new whitewashed condo.

Designed by Says Who for Bolia, the Cubis Coffee Table pulls apart to provide increased surface area, neatly tucking away when there are lesser demands on its use.
