Teso Table by Foster + Partners for Molteni&C

Anna Coe - Thursday, June 20, 2013

Starting with just a perforated disk of steel, Foster + Partners have created the Teso coffe table for Italian manufacturer Molteni&C. By pulling and stretching the steel upwards (using a robotic arm) it forms a mesh-like tapered base. The piece is finished with a glass top, allowing for the holey design to be seen from above.
