Hexagon design by Nendo
A bookshelf or side table in the form of a hexagonal pillar.
Hexagon is a contemporary interpretation of a form, already known in ancient Greek geometry. The regular six-edged-units are each divided by vertical sheets. Stacked they produce a beautiful rotational symmetry, typical for the hexagon, which Nendo cleverly exploits.
