Nesting tables inspired by Iceland's collective sweet tooth

Whether it's a cookie factory turned into a hostel or, in this case, furniture inspired by candy, Icelandic design is often conscious of the country's collective sweet tooth. Driven by childhood memories of Reykjavik's old chocolate factory—and the rich smells that would blanket the city on a clear summer day—Icelandic product designer Anne Þórunn created the 70% table in the image of her favorite dark chocolate bar. With a familiar motif that translates into a sleek piece of furniture, the small range of new nesting tables are made entirely of solid oak, cut into its distinct shape using CNC routing.

For more information on Þórunn and her enchanting designs, which caught our eye at last year's DesignMarch as well, visit her online.
