The Capas Table transforms itself visually from light and ethereal to solid and grounded, depending on how the viewer approaches the piece. Each Capas is created when a 1/4" sheet of solid aluminum, forming the table's surface, is seamlessly welded with curved sheets of aluminum to form the two legs of the table. Because of the nature of the curved forms and the ingenuity of its design, only two legs are needed for each table. Available in three heights and widths, Capas effortlessly forms a topographical landscape when the tables are nested. Because of the flexible nature of its design, these tables can also be utilized separately to become a solitary coffee table or supportive side table when needed within the interior application.
