Sylvain Willenz’s Rebar collection is a series of coffee-, side- and tray tables that explores the possibilities of reconsidering construction materials and processes. The design juxtaposes the reinforced steel bar frame with black marble tops and metal trays to create a balanced aesthetic. The tables are available in different sizes in round, square and rectangular shapes, and are suitable for using in private, corporate or public spaces.
