Pillar is a side table designed for the brand called &Tradition.

I was inspired by ancient pillars, commonly found in ancient Rome. This is a connection piece between ancient culture and modern design, which is a principle that &Tradition follows.

The height of the side table is 19.5 inches, which fits most of the lounge chairs and sofas on the market. The structure below will cast different shadow appearances during the day, which is a hidden surprise of this piece.

Pillar uses layers of plywood with a matte paint finish for its top part. The bottom structure uses CNC maple wood with domino connections as the primary material.

In a nutshell, Pillar is an elegant side table that combines the history of Rome and modern designs.
