Angled steel table legs prove an invigorating contrast to the tactile plank surface of Overlap. Apropos indoors and out, the dining table from design studio TAF features long-wearing construction, with the steel electro-galvanized with zinc under the anthracite powder-coat finish. Left to the elements, the Western Red Cedar tabletop naturally turns a weathered silvery grey.

"TAF’s aim is to make ordinary life less ordinary through subtle but effective changes in how products and architecture appear and function,” say Mattias Ståhlbom and Gabriella Gustafson. The designer duo founded the Stockholm-based TAF Architects studio to breathe new life into everyday—and ultimately necessary—tools for living.
With a range from lighting to furniture design to custom projects, TAF’s work has been exhibited at MoMA in New York and the Swedish National Museum in Stockholm. What unites the diverse offerings is a unifying and innovative approach to find the tipping point where, as they say, “everyday objects by their very commonness can be made uncommon.”
