    Designer Statement

    "I originally designed Ribs as a low table but many people used it for seating. Conceptually I combined two elements that are familiar to us, namely that of slatted timber furniture with the form of an organic creature, to create a new and unique piece that would be easy to understand.

    As its name suggests, Ribs is composed of a series of arching forms over a movable aluminium spine. Depending on how it’s positioned, it can have a linear edge and rest against a wall or sofa, or it can curve on two sides."
    - Stefan
