Sonoma Tables project, is a green furniture project that used two products environmental friendly, with Portuguese origin – Cork and Valchromat.
According to Christian Brown, “these side tables are designed so that they may be rotated to have different sides facing up as the top. When combined together in multiples, a number of patterns may be created by alternating the orientation of the individual tables”.
The designer describes his project saying: “The tables can be rearranged to create a variety of groupings. Think of them as adult-sized building blocks that encourage creative interaction. They are designed to be seat height, and may also be used as stools for extra seating at a dining table as needed. The open space in the middle of the tables is a great place for storing magazines or books. The tables may also be stacked”.
