Three sizes of table make up the Moooi Obon series, a patient process of combining unique circular and rounded shapes and forms. Their graphical purity and simplicity blend into the ceramic finish, creating a unique mix of new and antique. The design is as timeless as the archaeological finds for which they are reminiscent.
