A tray that will collect sparse objects on the floor, on a table. A little table in its own right that will create order in any busy space. Does a table require legs, one might wonder? Not at all. Vice versa, could a tray have legs? Yes, but a rim with slits instead of legs, all according to Carina Seth Andersson. Her Bridge Tray will be as content on the floor, brought outside, to another room, resting on a specially designed pouf, or on a table. A flexible piece of furniture that facilitate the use of any space. ’I often work sitting on the floor,’ Carina Seth Andersson explains, ‘and I prefer not having to risk spilling things lifting a tray by the corner, or trip over protruding handles.
