The square shape of this smaller table in &Tradition's Fly Collection encourages conversation and shared intimacy as seating can be drawn up to all sides. While it can serve as a smaller coffee table or even side table, the SC4 is by no means diminutive as the casual luxury of its materials make it a true statement piece. Space Copenhagen designers Signe Bindslev Henriksen and Per Bundgaard Rutzov offer a choice of minimalist black or white: in either white-pigmented oiled oak frame with a tabletop of honed Bianco Carrera marble, or the darker smoked-oil finish paired with polished Nero Marquina marble. Over time, the oiled wood will age gracefully. No surprise that these boundary-breaking designers would approach the concept of "hanging out" in such a refined fashion.

Design is never static. When Copenhagen-based &Tradition was established in 2010, founder Martin Kornbek Hansen's mission was to produce work that was defined by a unique vision, whether it came from Danish legends of the past or young innovators of the future. The roster extends from timeless luminaries such as Verner Panton and Arne Jacobsen to current leading lights Samuel Wilkinson and Norm.Architects to exciting new names Mia Hamborg and Victor Vetterlein. As the company's Kornbek Hansen puts it: "We see a kinship between the old masters, who were avant-garde in their time, and new designers creating the ground-breaking icons of today."
With its library of furniture and lighting extending from the 1930s to the present day, the firm is uniquely positioned to carry on the Nordic tradition of unstinting craftsmanship and adroit use of materials. Nonetheless, &Tradition sees its future in global terms, handpicking design talent and production facilities internationally in an effort to continually produce relevant product and engage a new generation of conscious consumers.
