The main feature is a simplicity. The table constists of the board made from solid oak and steel tubes. Small tables are designed for being used for esting, working or putting stuff on them. Table with a flower is a vase which becomes a standalone part of interior. Small tables are designed to be placed at sofa or bed area.
The construction of dinning table is also frameless, furthermore steel tubes are inserted into solid oak wood without any glue. Wooden boards hold together only with butterfly joints. The holes in the surface are filled with tin and polished. This technology was used in old times in Moravia (part of Bohemia) for decorating.
