Innovative Design Materials: Jesmonite
Acrylic-modified gypsum composite Jesmonite has inspired designers around the world for over 30 years with its unique versatility.
London design studio PINCH unveiled a new version of their remarkable Nim table during Maison et Objet earlier this year. Floating on a raised foot with a recessed top, the sculptural coffee table has now been given a show-stopping patinated metal finish. Nim Copper is available as an edition of just 50 numbered pieces.
