Cooper by Nina Mair
Updated: Dec 5, 2019
Inspiration for the Cooper design has been drawn from the colourful city life of Cairo. Cooper quotes the round sieves used for cooking in Egypt, consisting of a grid structure surrounded and fixed by a round wooden frame. The two-piece body of the Cooper side table sits on three steel legs, which in turn are fit into a ring. The table top can be removed and used as a tray. Its delicate pattern creates a sense of transparency and lightness, hiding the objects stowed away underneath. An Arabic tile pattern has been stripped down to its geometric base elements in order to generate a new contemporary pattern that is lasered into the Cooper table top. The wooden body consists of several veneer layers. Cooper is available in two colour combinations: whitened beech combined with a light teal shade, and an ensemble of stained dark beech and gold.
