Name: Index

Designer: Jonah Takagi

Location: Washington D.C. & San Francisco

Council is a San Francisco-based firm that was started in 2006. Founder and designer Derek Chen was puzzled to find that there were so few American design companies represented in the international design field. This inspired the formation of Council.

Jonah Takagi is the designer of the Index tables. His vibrant and never-ending imagination inspired him to become an industrial designer and start his own atelier. His furniture and lighting pieces have been well-received at previous shows including IMM Cologne and the Milan Furniture Fair.

Index is a collection of tables that possess a simple and warm, yet modern aesthetic. Each table uses the same support structure system, but all come in different heights and colors. The family of tables is constructed of stained ash wood that is available in whitewash, green or yellow.

About the Author – Kyle Troutman

I was used to being around his closest contractor buddies and making the usual Home Depot trips with him on the weekends. So, instead of becoming a designer (or even an architect), editing and following design trends became my passion. I’ve worked at Country Living magazine, founded and edited a men’s magazine at my college, and now work in design PR.
