As a part of their “One Design a Day” initiative wherein they develop a new product each day for a year, Studio Michael Hilgers has introduced their HOKU side table. Inspired by a ‘wave’, Hilgers’ bent table surface serves as a multifunctional side table.
The unique wave of the side table serves not only an aesthetic purpose but also creates a practical second level, allowing it to double up as a side table, a bedside table, magazine/newspaper rack, a folder rack, etc! It is a universally applicable piece of furniture, catering to that which is absolutely necessary: unlimited functionality. Though solid in design, the table manages to project a softer feel, that of paper or lightweight fabric. While creating the illusion of being pushed against the wall, it becomes a part of any living space seamlessly. Available in a neutral Olive Green, the piece does indeed soothe our eyes.
A trained cabinet maker and an architect, Michael Hilgers has been awarded several times with the “Interior Innovation Award”, and he has surely been innovative: providing us with this side table with a twist!
