Have you seen those unique, big trees on Africa called Baobab? RKNL was inspired by those trees and created this unique and minimalist side table. It comes with three “leaves” where you can put things on it. Interesting isn’t it? More description by RKNL:

The BoBo Side Table does not follow the conventional rules. It is cuddly, handy and a little bit perky. In short, the BoBo is a piece of furniture with a distinct character, exactly the way I like to design them.

The idea for this occasional table was inspired by the African Baobab tree. This tree with its wide trunk and fragile branches defies all laws of correct proportions, which makes it one of a kind in nature.

The BoBo is expressing the same. Perky and unique. Is it a side table anyway? It sure is handy though, since the 3 plateaus offer room for cups, mobile phone, iPad, remote control or even an old school book.

Moving
Every now and then you want to move a side table to position it next to the couch or to add it when you have visitors. Therefore, BoBo is delivered with a felt ring. If you have a hard flooring you can stick this felt under the side table. If you have a soft flooring you can leave it off course.

Craft
Also this piece by RKNL is made by real craftsmen. No mass production but production with attention for detail. The center piece is made of solid oak and has an honest, natural look. As a result of the use of solid oak, each piece is different and has its own character.

Versions
There are 2 standard versions of the BoBo: Solid oak with White steel and Charcoal oak with Brushed brass. The latter version is colored by the Shou-sugi-ban technique, an ancient Japanese technique in which wood is burned and brushed to form a natural protection. This traditional torching method generates a much richer color than a standard stain and deepens the grain of the oak. After burning, the side table is lacquered to prevent the release of charcoal.
