Designer: Gabriel Tan, 2023
Cyclade tables are a collection of furniture designed by Gabriel Tan for the Herman Miller brand. These are tables of various sizes and shapes that refer to the form of the Cyclades, Greek islands in the Aegean Sea. The tables have organic, fluid and asymmetric contours that create interesting contrasts with the straight and geometric legs. The tables are made of wood and metal, which emphasize the quality and durability of the materials. The tables are available in a variety of colors and finishes that can be matched to your own taste and style. Cyclade tables are universal and functional because they can be used as coffee, side, bedside or side tables. They can also be combined and arranged in various ways, creating dynamic and diverse spaces. Cyclade tables are perfect for the living room, bedroom, office or any other room where we want to add a touch of elegance and modernity. Cyclade tables are an example of a design that combines elements of craftsmanship with precise engineering, referring to the heritage and contemporary capabilities of the Herman Miller brand.
