Following last year’s successful launch of the T&O chair and stool for Maruni, Jasper Morrison continues the theme of wood and painted steel in a variety of shapes and sizes with the new T&O table. His rectangular T&O table sits on red steel legs with circular bases, and a smaller circular table is supported by a similarly shaped metal stem.
Morrison says, “There’s nothing unusual about using wood and steel together, but I realised by using it in the middle of the chair between wooden parts and with colour, it would bring something fresh to this typology of chair. I like the way the round base contrasts the square tops, and the way the legs of the longer tables are joined with a wooden bar so that the metal is between wooden elements.”
The T&O collection is named for its resemblance to the two letters, with the crossbar of the T and the roundness and counter of the O reflected in the table and chair. Both of these pieces are now also available in ash.
