Set-up is a minimal table designed by Italy-based designer Stefano Soave. The tabletop is made of a single piece of polyethylene, while the base can come in either cement, metal, or cast iron – all of which are suitable for outdoor use. The base is designed to allow for an easy removal of the tabletop for storage in the Winter while keeping the cement base outdoors.
I rarely get to see a polyethylene and concrete combination, and I have to say, they form together nicely. The simplicity and durability of these two materials make them an obvious match for each other. I also think the slit on the tabletop is brilliant. It doesn’t obstruct its functionality while in use, but it serves a notable purpose in storage and stackability.
