Like an iris, the circular colored portion of the eye surrounding the pupil, the circular Iris tables are a combination of shades of the same color (and colors close to it). There are five Iris tables, each with its own specific color spectrum.


Each table is composed of several finely engineered aluminum "slices", each individually anodized, creating a unique colour specific to that single component.


Combined, these geometric components are repeated to form a tessellated ring. Each table is specifically designed to create the best possible form to showcase the rich colour palette.


"Color is a very important consideration in any designed object. When a variety of shades are laid out on a table, suddenly the pattern becomes uplifting and alive, in the same way that the array of spines on a bookshelf brings a room to life", say Barber and Osgerby.
