A language of delicate contours defines the Simplon series of tables, designed for Cappellini by Jasper Morrison. The range includes tables and side tables with a base made of anodized aluminum and a slender oval top in poplar plywood paired , with a lacquered (matte or glossy) finish or oak (natural, black, or wengé-stained). The top of the low-lying table is also available in elegant white Carrara or grey Roma marble.
