Berlin-based, Bauhaus-influenced design studio New Tendency has delivered the first reworked object from its limited “Truth to Materials” series: the Meta Side Table.

Handcrafted from untreated stainless steel, the side table combines the studio’s conceptual design practice and clean aesthetics with high-tech craftsmanship and functional form. The engraving you see on the tabletop, a series of numbers above the words “TRUTH TO MATERIALS,” has been engraved by laser and the logo itself was designed by Michel Egger, who previously worked with Frank Ocean among others.

To realize its pieces, New Tendency takes what it calls a “past-time” approach to its work, meaning the studio employs traditional artisanal practices while seeking to discover what that means in the modern world. The accompanying video reflects this via sleek visuals that help the viewer understand how a timeless piece is created.
