In these frenzied times, mobility is the name of the game. Happily, the Marionet side table follows suit. Contemplating the posture of puppets, German designer Simon Busse conceived it for Swiss manufacturer Mox as the furnishings equivalent.
The three points of the central steel support are inserted into slots in flat solid-oak legs. A hook on the top of the connector holds a rubber band that stretches to penetrate the top, a 20½-inch diameter disc of sheet steel, powder-coated black or white. While the band creates a nifty handle, eager to accommodate improvisational decorating, it's also critical to maintain the table's 22-inch height. Then again, none of the parts are expendable. "The table stands firmly only if all its components interact," Busse says. "If one is missing, it collapses." All for one and one for all. 41-44-2713344; mox.ch.
