Hem’s Bookmatch dining table, designed by Philippe Malouin, is a tribute to traditional carpentry and artisanship. The table’s oak veneer surfaces are adorned with natural wood grain patterns that beautifully emphasise the simple but considered and skilfully executed structure of the table. Bookmatch's raw and robust look is guaranteed to catch the eye in both modern dining areas and office meeting rooms.
