Petite Friture’s Fromme coffee table boasts simple, streamlined shapes and a thin, rectangular tabletop with integrated shock absorbers that give it a slightly flexible feel. Made of matte-coated aluminium, the Fromme table is designed for both outdoor and indoor use – it is equally ideal as a side table in the garden or as a coffee table indoors.
Canadian designer and cycling enthusiast Tom Chung came up with the initial idea for the Fromme collection while cycling at Mount Fromme near Vancouver. Inspired by the technical features of his bike, he designed a collection featuring small shock absorbers under the seats and tabletops, as well as lightweight and durable cast aluminium tubes with weatherproof powder coating. The Fromme series is made using recyclable materials and UV-resistant coatings that don’t contain harmful VOCs.
