Composed of two perfectly mirrored oak veneer boards, the Bookmatch Table pays tribute to the imperfections of nature.
Inspired by the bookmatching technique, the mirrored solid wood edges are left raw. the Bookmatch is engineered for lightness while retaining its natural and simple origin. Flat packed and assembled in moments.
