No-No Tables | Note Design Studio + Norm Architects

Inspired by a meeting in Italy, and an old marble floor, these two Scandinavian firms saw potential. The table itself manifests in a number of differing sizes and heights, allowing for collaboration amongst the collection to create vignettes and to allow for use across a number of spaces. Each piece has its own character and tension between the natural pieces of marble laid out in a graphic pattern, echoing the tiled tables of the 1970s in a new and contemporary way, and was the result of a process that saw them play with the idea of micro-furniture, creating something that was in between furniture and accessories.
