Armani-Casa-Jim-Table1

With a circular top and three slab-like inclined legs, Armani/Casa’s ‘Jim’ table recalls the design traditions of the Far East. Cementing that aesthetic is an optional brass inset in the style of an enlarged tsuba, a Japanese sword guard (the keyhole-like shape in the middle of the tsuba is where the sword would be fed through). The symbol appears in other pieces in Armani/Casa’s collections, including ‘Jazz’, a sophisticated bar cabinet, where it is repurposed as a circular handle.
