ABOUT

Twist is a stylish console table with a chamfered top and two twisted legs. The tabletop and twisted legs can be in various material combinations. The two twisted legs start at the center and end at the two opposite sides of the top, forming the supporting frame of the tabletop. A metal frame with cut-outs and a supporting structure under the tabletop provides strength, continuity and connects the twisted legs. Unlike other console tables with four legs, two twisted legs give Twist a sculptural look.
