We were completely charmed by these King Louis Tables we spotted at the Lab Craft Exhibition at this year’s London Design Festival. Harking back to the grand ol’days when the French monarch reigned supreme, designer Gareth Neal gives these pieces a modern day twist using 3D computer drawing and CNC processing to create a sturdy cardboard honeycomb structure for these tables. An eye-catching, tongue-in-cheek creation fusing the old with the new, the Louis makes the perfect addition to any modernist home looking for a bit of irony.
