The AX table perfectly expresses the pursuit of essentialness: pure silhouettes and a geometric language are its distinguishing features, making it a simple and light-weight object, yet at the same time characterised by a solid shape. The name derives from the shape of the base, which is formed by two criss-crossed components an X.
