Spanish designer Tomás Alonso, part of London-based Okay Studeio, named the Mushiki Storage System after the Japanse word for “steaming vessel.” The table’s shape and functionality is modeled after the stackable bamboo components of the steaming vessel’s design.

“Available in two sizes, each round structure features a column with a wooden hinge running along it, which allows various modules to be stacked, rotated and opened.  Like many of alonso’s designs, these tables combine simple elements to render more complex structures, enabling users to adjust its movable components to explore proportion and spatial relationships. with a strong emphasis on how humans relate to the products.”
