Pebbles: Originally created for a 2007 Milan Furniture Fair exhibition, this table, also available in aluminum and wood, is made from Turkish marble. “Marble is stone, so you can use any shape you want,” Özdemir explains, “but we wanted to use a very organic, natural form, as if you had left a block of marble by the sea and the waves had worn it away, leaving only this form.” The table is named for and recalls a beach pebble, but in Özdemir’s view, the table is not just about the form of the object we can see; it is also about the force that formed it: “The shape of the table,” she says, “is all about waves.”
