The Grasshopper collection of tables are a perfect combination of pure geometry and synthesis of design. The elegance of Grasshopper derives from its combination of surfaces and structure: the surfaces are distinguished by their slenderness and are available with a rectangular form, with rounded corners, or in a circular format. While the structure is composed of very thin, high-performance cast steel elements available chromed, burnished or painted finishes. The tabletop is available in uncommon and exquisite stone, such as Ruby Red marble, glass, and woods.
Grasshopper also includes a family of low coffee tables conceived as a minimal planetary system suspended at different heights. The low tables use the same materials and combine with the main round tabletop to produce secondary, differently sized tables. Available as single table, or two- and three-table sets.
