This table has slender legs as if a thin board was floating in the air. The solid metal legs are placed inside of the top board to make the legs unnoticeable. Commonly, for the design of a wooden top board and metal legs, the top board is placed on the top of the legs and secured with screws. As not many people look at the backside of the top board, most designers do not worry about such details.

For this table, grooves are made in the back of the top board to implant metal leg frames for a flat surface. While the table has a knock-down system, we eliminated the indentations even in the invisible parts with the aim of generating a sense of unity between the delicate legs and the top board with a sense of floating. People touch furniture with their hands and body. We believe it is essential to pay detailed attention to these invisible small parts.
