Cupola seems to defy gravity, with the transparent elements at the base and the heavy marble tabletop hovering above. Borrowing its name from historic domed cathedrals, this side table's crowing glory is a solid stone disk that appears to float on its metal base. Intersecting glass panels hold it aloft, in clear or transparent black paired with white Carrera or inky Marquina marble. An anodized aluminum connector—in light grey, golden or black, depending on model—provides a carefully crafted flourish to this side table by Jens Kajus and Claus Jakobsen for the Copenhagen design house Million.

With a commitment to exacting production in Denmark and timeless design, Million cofounders Jens Kajus and Claus Jakobsen collaborate with designers and architects to create lighting, furniture and decorative items that uphold Scandinavian design tenants.
Jens and Claus both attended the Danish Design School at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, yet a decade apart. Jens focused on visual identities and branding, mostly at his award-winning company e-Types. It was there that he and Claus—a wood craftsman who spent 7 years overseeing design and production at HAY, then another couple of years for Muuto—co-designed much of the furniture for the e-Type design studios. The pair joined forces in 2015 to launch Million in Copenhagen.
