These hidden spaces comprise of mini chambers and sections that can used for safely storing precious items of your home office.
So, at the end of the day, the Kai Table is engineered to impress us with its multi-purpose cabinet structure. The great thing about this adroit design ambit is – all these components are usable in their own scope, but they can be collectively organized to embody a seamless table arrangement.
The functional attributes are equally complemented by the unobtrusive aesthetics of the Kai Table. This overall simplistic essence is partially derived from the use of plywood coated with Tilia Japonica timber.
