Max Lipsey has designed a convenient, expressive table to complement our Aztec sofa.

“Olio” stands for improvised collage, a hodgepodge of leftover materials. This concept is what inspired designer Max Lipsey to create a new side table for our Aztec sofa. The base is made up of leftover metal pipes and sheet metal. The top is divided in four smaller pieces, in order to utilize material left over from the production process.

Before he starts the design process, Max familiarizes himself with the material. Like any inquisitive craftsman, he feels, bends, takes apart and experiments, until he knows the material through and through. In addition to creating his own designs, he is often approached by clients for custom interior or furniture projects. ‛For custom pieces, I explore how an object enters into a dialogue with its environment.’
