Siba Sahabi designed three side tables named after the Greek mathematician Euclid of Alexandria—also known as the Father of Geometry.

In 300 B.C., Euclid described in ‘Elements’, his treatise of 13 books on mathematics and geometry, the construction of a solid called ‘polyhedron’. The three side table are based on this particular solid, composed of flat polygonal faces, sharp corners and straight edges.

The objects are made from metal and finished with a coating of paper. Each side table is constructed out of four elements that consist of seven triangular sections which form both the surface and the legs. Through this geometric construction, the visual aspects of mathematics are translated into contemporary design.
