The Vladi side table embraces the interplay between tensile and compressive forces, between lightness and tension. Viewed from above, the tray resembles a sewn-on button. Considered on balance, it is the graceful double structure formed by more than 40 meters
of string that creates
characteristic side view. The tray is held at a distance from the base plate by a thin metal rod, granting stability. The table looks light, almost delicate, but it is durable and resilient. Vladi is available in 45 and 50 cm heights, in varieties of solid wood and in black soft lacquer.
