Lean is inspired by the self-clamping table legs used by Luis Arrivillaga in his Quadra table system. Like other cantilevered designs Luis's table legs lock into position using the weight of the table top and the angle of the legs themselves. This method does away with the need for fasteners or glue and creates a more modular design.

  • Our objects collection generally ship out within 5 business days. Shipping time will vary depending on where it is being shipped to and which shipping speed is selected at checkout.

  • We do offer product design services, for more information about this head over to our Consulting page:

  • Yes each of our Object products are designed to be functional objects, the bottle opener really does open bottles and the candlestick can really be used as a candlestick.

  • We use a 'single' box packaging policy wherever possible which means that there isn't boxes inside of other boxes - this way we don't waste material. There are a few exceptions to this for instance if we are shipping a glass item that requires us to float the box for protection or if there are multiple items as part of the same order.

  • Yes we ship all over the world, see shipping prices and options at checkout, from USPS to DHL.


Inspired by the stars and the connections among them.
