Around is a minimalist coffee table and side table collection by Denmark-based designer Thomas Bentzen. Designed for MUUTO, the tables are inspired by 50′s and 60′s Scandinavian craft. The collection comes in ash, oak, black, grey, red, and yellow. Bentzen also states that he prefers to have an edge on his coffee and side tables. The lip around the perimeter of the designs serve as both a functional and aesthetic purpose.
More than anything, the colors are my favorite aspect of this design. The lip around the perimeter can be useful, but I feel like it might be more of an obstruction at times. Scandinavia has such distinctive designs, and I love it all.
