The B.A Side Table is one rugged extension of the wood it’s made from. If you’re a fan of minimal furniture but also enjoy pieces that are highly personal and expressive, this can be a challenge. Thank goodness there are folks like Yuki Kawae who brings “Rugged Individualism” to life in all his furniture designs. The B.A. Side Table brings nature right to your living room. Inspired by the countryside of Kyoto, Japan where Kawae was raised in nature, and married with his formal studies in interior architecture, painting an anthropology, Kawae seems to have found a balance between nature and industrial design. Handmade from a reclaimed log, Kawae uses a chainsaw to carve out an unmistakable design. He than finishes the table off with a 1/4″ hot rolled steel rod. This table reminds me of learning to use a chainsaw with my dad, which was 1/2 exhilarating, and 1/2 completely terrifying. This side table will certainly evoke similar memories for all those lucky enough to rest their G & T on its many rings.
