Bauhaus-inspired Kilo occasional tables at Habitat


Some time ago (indeed it was back in 2008), we featured a modernist classic, the Josef Albers nesting tables, which date back to the mid-1920s are were created as a custom build for a Berlin apartment at the time. The Vitra reissues of these certainly aren't cheap - but the Bauhaus-inspired Kilo occasional tables at Habitat are reasonable.

At first glance, it's hard to spot the difference between the Vitra reissue and the Habitat range, but obviously, there are subtle differences. The tops are steel rather than the glass used for the originals, but the oak frame survives. You'll notice the overhang is slightly different too, but to the untrained eye, these would pass as the real deal.


Habitat has several versions of these, both in terms of colour choice and in size. The standard size is pictured here, but you can also opt for a long version, a version for our audio/visual equipment and a set of nesting tables.

As for that price, it starts at £25.
