Alex Nesting Tables
The Alex nesting tables have a stunning simplicity. Each of the three escalating sizes of the Alex nesting tables features a simple thick circular top with three legs. The legs are characterized by their atypical square-shaped form. The e15 Alex nesting tables create a sculptural single table with their repetitive shapes and escalating scale – when separated, they become three practical surfaces.
