Boasting an oiled oak base made from solid oak and oak veneer, the marble top is the perfect punctuation to a lovely low side table that doesn't impose its presence on your surroundings. The rounded corners add panache and personality to this little gem with an enduring appeal. "Most people don't pay attention to side tables," admits &tradition Brand Manager Martin Kornbek Hansen. "But we were instantly attracted to the Fly Table's sculptural shape. The natural oak wood and the choice of marble for the top. It's contemporary yet timeless and elegant yet understated. A cohesive concept that merges classic materials with modernity."

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.
