We can’t wait for this year’s London Design Festival, and we’re excited to announce that London-based furniture design company Formtank will be launching a series of sustainable table designs at 100% Design next week! Using a single sheet of industrial steel in the most efficient way possible, these cutting-edge “2d3d” tables are constructed to maximize yield while minimizing waste to less than 4% per linear meter.

Capable of carrying a considerable load, the volume of each table’s base is just ¼ of the volume of the glass it supports. Formtank’s 2d3d tables are manufactured by CAD/CAM technology and once cut, the steel is hand formed and finished. All Formtank products are manufactured in the UK.

If you are in London between the 18-21 September, you can see Formtank’s furniture at stand H94 at 100% Design, Earls Court.
