The Twist Petit is versatile piece for home or office. The Twist Petit works well in any room, the perfect surface for a lamp, a plant, framed photos, a good book, or other treasures. What makes Petit outstanding is its gorgeous twisted metal base, a technique that makes the table sturdy and stable.
Twist’s bends may look simple, but getting the right rotation took time … and an understanding of physics. We experimented with different metals, different widths of metal, and different degrees of torque before we found the perfect twist.
It all started with a long train ride. As a way of passing the time, designer Thomas Schnur began playing with a strip of paper. After experimenting with various bends, turns, and coils, he considered applying the same principles to metal. His immediately thought of using the technique for a clothes hanger, but the design evolved to the base of table. Twist had taken shape.
