A+M Collection
Eric Owen Moss Home

The initial offering from Eric Own Moss Home, the A+M Collection reimagines traditional Scandinavian woodworking benches as a platform for five distinct tables for commercial and residential settings. The repurposed benches maintain the network of holes traditionally used for clamping wood and are offered with a new series of accessories — a phone stand, tablet stand, tray, storage box, storage cup, and coaster — to fill the holes. The modular tabletops are supported on new legs that originate as a circle exposed on the top surface of the table that gradually transform into a square as they meet the floor.
