The Explorer Side Tables, designed by Jaime Hayon for BD Barcelona Design, is a a series of side tables inspired by children's most serious occupation: play! These tables are typical of Jaime's design: playing with colours and shapes to craft products which are not only functional but also sculptural. By combining different techniques - painting some parts with a gloss finish, some others in matte and adding reflective glass top surfaces plus different combinations of colours - gives even more richness and playfulness to the collection.
The Explorer Side Tables collection comprises 3 tables: the Explorer 1 (Small: Ø 40 x H 50 cm), the Explorer 2 (Medium: Ø 60 x H 46 cm) and the Explorer 3 (Large: Ø 100 x H 42). All of these can be either multicolour or unicolour.
