We designed the Mangrove table for the Sayrach´s house collection. The marine world is the main source of inspiration and Mangroves are threes that grow in environments where the water contains high concentrations of salts and water levels are regularly changing.

Growing where the substrate is unstable, Mangroves have developed an architecture of complex roots that rise from the main branch producing flying structures. This fractal structure has been studied and simulated computationally for the designing of this 3D printed table.
