The seemingly impossible Slim Table involves the use of an innovative steel sandwich construction with a lightweight honeycomb-structure core. Designer Bertjan Pot: "Some people will feel that the composite structure of the Slim Table undermines its authenticity, but this is actually what makes it authentic. The inherent properties of the different materials have been used as honestly as possible: metal for its strength and wood for its tactile and aesthetic qualities. Without innovation is minimalism quickly becomes a dead end."
