The name of this table by Jasper Morrison suggests a neutral platform for endless decor possibilities. Four slender steel legs support a sophisticated square Carrara marble top with slightly rounded contours that unify the design. This modern classic quietly blends into any living room or reception area as a side or coffee table. Made in Germany by Vitra, a manufacturer of iconic modern furnishings that’s widely represented in the Museum’s collection.
