While most boardroom tables are as dull as the meetings they facilitate, Formtank’s 2d3d offers a welcome break from the norm. The London-based furniture company has won praise across the design world for its radical approach to folding sheet steel.

A combination of complex maths and some precision engineering, the table’s strength is all derived from triangles, according to designer George Rice. Each table has been reverse designed from the steel industry’s standard sheet size in order to maximize yield and limit waste steel to less than 4% overall.
