The streets of Bali are spotless in the early morning hours and sidewalks, steps, statues, and temples are now ready for the daily gift of offerings meant to please the various gods and demons of Balinese Hinduism.
In 2005, I saw local women carrying round teak trays with offerings and they inspired me to design my minimalistic table series OBI for Linteloo. By creating an abstract basic form and then increasing only its scale in an almost absurdist manner these black stained tables were born. And after 7 years of production, due to its success, Obi can now be ordered in any Ral color. Wow!
