The A-frame structure of an industrial storage container in a Malaysian furniture factory was the initial spark that inspired Stack – a trio of three stacking tray tables with distinctive A-shaped legs. Reinterpreting traditional nesting tables, the three trays of differing depths stack to a combined height of 410mm. They thus function most ideally as side tables for a sofa with the added benefit of discrete storage. The gaps between the trays in the stacked formation are created by the presence of two beams that connect the A-frame pairs and support each tray. The gaps break up the mass and allow glimpses of what is stored within. The protrusion of the A-frames above the sides of the trays creates convenient handles. Given their various depths, the trays are positioned at different heights on the A-frames such that when the trio is stacked, there is a regular distance between the tops of the handles.
