Handmade in Bosnia

The top of the Ombra Table is constructed by joining together tiny “Penrose Prototiles” in solid wood. These specific prototiles are named after Sir. Roger Penrose, a famous British mathematician who first investigated them in 1970s. The prototiles have remarkable geometric and visual properties. For one, they are aperiodic, meaning that a shifted copy of the original set of prototiles will never look the same. The pattern does not repeat! The designer joined the prototiles in the tabletop in a way to create an abstract tree shade. Ombra Table is made with the environment in mind by utilizing small pieces of wood likely to end up as production waste.
