The tables are handcrafted works of artistry, designed to be both, a stand-alone sculpture and a functional piece of furniture. They come with differently scaled table tops, from thin oval or square boards which work as dining or display tables to larger, rectangular casings that function as bar or decoration tables.

Each table is handmade by craftsmen in and around Beijing, a combination of fiberglass and wood, painted in high-quality lack in white or black, but also in other colors as requested. The Flamingo Leg Table is available in stainless steel.

本能系列是具有艺术性的手工作品,即可成为一个独立的雕塑,同时也是一件功能性的家具。他们由不同规模的台面组合成餐桌、条案、吧台。每个作品都是在北京的工匠手工制造,玻璃纤维和木材的组合材质外表白色或黑色的高品质汽车烤漆,同时也提供其他颜色的选择。其中仙鹤条案也会有不锈钢材质。
