      Three limited two-tone linoleum editions are available: clay/walnut, pistachio/olive and vapour/smokey blue. Inspired by sought-after vintage foldable tables available at Artek 2nd Cycle, the two tones echo the different levels of patination observed. This colour variation occurs naturally over time as the drop leaf can be kept closed when not in use, resulting in differing levels of exposure to light and contact and a different ageing rhythm to that of the table top.
