The name already evokes masts and sails ready to set off to sea. This, in fact, was the idea of Japanese designer Nendo when he created the Sail accent table, a very simple oak-stained beech wood top supported by a matte black steel structure. It can be placed anywhere, in the living room or in a reading corner, always ready to open horizons for traveling, at least with the imagination.
BASE: matt black powder-coated steel. Thermoplastic feet.
TOP: birch plywood (class E1, CARB P2 / TSCA Title VI certified),veneered in smoked oak, edge in solid smoked oak wood, finished
with transparent water-based or solvent-based coating
