The Ellipse cocktail table features two oval tempered glass tops set over a soft white tinted concrete base. This base has a fine basketweave texture that softens the industrial modern design. When closed, the tops are superimposed over one another in a simple oval shape. Gently move one of the tops and the other will revolve in the opposite direction to expand the table. The fluid motion of these tops is accomplished by a set of gears with a smooth operation like the movement of a fine timepiece. It is in the beauty and precision of these gears that the true value of the table is revealed.
