Picture the situation: you’ve just read “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up,” Marie Kondo’s ode to de-cluttering everything, and now you give everything away and fold your clothes in a way that will make them happy. Your new deccor aesthetic is now sparse and clean, and nothing screams sparse and clean than the Zefiro Tavolini table designed by Antonio Citterio for Flexform. Its smaller size is great for a young family, and the marble top makes it ideal if for flatlays. Its structured, streamlined look blends in the room but doesn’t disappear, and makes a quiet statement all on its own.

The Flexform Showroom is located at 215 Nicanor Garcia St. Bel Air 2 Makati City

When closed, it gives off a hightened aesthetic look and when opened gently diffuses light into the surrounding space.
