Forming part of the Abalon family of versatile products, the Abalon Coffee Table is a handsome and uncomplicated piece of contemporary furniture. Taking its name from the shell of a mollusc, the coffee table features an organic, circular shape, and is available with a powder-coated base in a choice of black and mint finish, and a tabletop in either natural or dark oak.
Well suited to all manner of environments, especially so commercial ones, the Abalon is a beautifully considered piece that will elevate any space.
Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, the Breton-born brothers, are the stars of European design and the most promising industrial designers to have emerged from France since Philippe Starck in the 1980s.
A combination of romanticism and functionality runs throughout both brothers’ work. Like all truly talented designers, the Bouroullecs have defined a distinctive visual style, which Jasper Morrison (one of the designers they most admire) described as “thoughtful and disciplined, with a real spirit and poetry”.
