Horm w Steven Holl Riddled Table
The originality and workmanship of its legs are the outstanding features of the Riddled table, which incorporates the notion of porosity found in multiple architecture works by Steven Holl. The thin sheets of wood, folded through laser engraving, make this project even more spectacular in its apparent defiance of the laws of physics. These two legs, akin to origami sculptures, allow the passage of the internal light to create a myriad of lights and shadows.

Tempered glass top, 12 mm thick. Legs made from a material designed and patented by HORM, composed of a sandwich of wood and fabric 2.2 mm thick, which, thanks to a number of superficial incisions made with a laser cutter, can be folded up like origami.
