Stone & Foam Side Tables by Pieteke Korte

Pieteke Korte presents a series of soft-seated side tables for his graduate project in Man and Identity studies at the Design Academy Eindhoven.

Korte’s focus on texture, surface and color design results in highly tactile works that are curious in their material application.


Heavy-set stone in cold marble and polished finishes is sandwiched between or burdensomely balanced on top of cleverly shaped foam bases. Squishy and folded characteristics of the foam are contrasted with the sliced edges of stone making these pieces feel inherently playful and entirely covetable for both commercial and domestic interiors.
