Created for the Cartier Foundation in Paris, the Less series is the embodiment of Jean Nouvel's architectural ethos. Disciplined composition, lightweight forms, simplicity, research into materials and the use of technology – always there, but never intrusive – are the core features which make Less an elegant, practical solution for the contemporary office, rather than a simple response to a space problem.

Designed to represent the archetypal table, the Less table is so sleek that it leaves you questioning its solidity – and its very nature. An abstract, monolithic structure made entirely from metal, Less’ design is distilled to its simplest form through the adoption of smooth surfaces and compact profiles. Available in different sizes and in square and rectangular versions, the table can also be used as a workstation. An extension worktop can also be added to create an L-shaped configuration.

The elementarity I seek has nothing to do with minimalism. Even when it goes in for a bare minimum of material, design is no less creative"
