A metallic bird-footed table by Meret Oppenheim influenced the endearing 'Pig on the Wings' design. If you know of the original, you'll certainly pick up on the similarities between the two, but this particular product has a significantly more amiable aesthetic with its rounded corners, its stocky legs and its cheerful color palette.

The ModMobili object functions as a side table and a stool, offering an oblong flat surface and a pair of supports with four floor contact points each. The furnishings have been painted from the ankles up in orange, light green, navy blue or white.

The eight-toed base of the 'Pig on the Wings' is assembled by slotting four thin poplar wood fins together in pairs. This means that the piece can be flatpacked for shipping and storage and built by its purchaser.
