Named for the fashionable Aoyama district in Tokyo known for its restaurants and shops, this coffee table has an unusual openwork motif. Danish-French designer Paul Leroy creates the table’s center column in laser-cut steel-plate, giving the table a visual lightness that belies its solid structure. With its round tabletop to contrast with its geometric element, Aoyama proves an intriguing addition to modern living spaces.

“I started out with two very strong designs, Bestlite—a Bauhaus collection designed in 1930—and Gubi Chair, designed in 2003” Jacob says (both available at A+R). “I felt they had something in common,” he continues. “Iconic appearance, functional design, high quality, aesthetic design language and adaptable for many different kinds of interiors. I took these values as a guideline for any new designs added to the collection ever since.”
