German-born designer Christian Haas attaches the tabletop's modular legs individually so they are easily detachable for flat-pack transportation. A similar, environmentally prescient point of view imbues Japanese heritage brand Karimoku New Standard, who manufacture the table and companion chair in their pristine factories just east of Nagoya. With the aim of preserving and revitalizing the country's forests, eco-conscious production dictates the selection of hardwood from long underused low-diameter tress. Furthering the sense of timeless longevity is Karimoku's painstaking craftsmanship and the piece's matte natural finish in solid Japanese oak wood. Christian's similar care for craft continue to be honed in he adopted home now of Porto, Portugal.
