Unlike other projects, which are individual pieces, the project Nix for B&B Italia was about a group of objects, a family of tables for the living room, in different shapes and sizes. They can be used alone, in pairs, or fitted together.
They look like they were built out of sheets of paper distanced from each other by legs, also in folded paper. The idea behind the design was to have thin and light forms to balance the more abundant forms of the sofas and be made of a single material. The essential element of the project is the design of the leg, with its soft curve that fits into the tops and occupies - in number and alternated position on the different tables - the possible spaces available to combine these tables.
Details are what make Nix small tables important, the thinness of sheet metal tops and the hollow section of the brackets. The highest version also has a wooden or leather top. Functional in the living room and bedroom, they are designed to stand alone and also to happily coexist when stacked, which underscores their graphic features.
