About: Monkey Pods

Designed for a poolside area in Manhattan, this end-table series brings together an uncommon yet playful wood species, and deceptively light deployment of concrete to create a series of surfaces upon which to enjoy cocktails, play games, and appreciate the qualities of the wood. Sustainably sourced from Costa Rica and machined locally, this series of 12 tables showcases the beautiful variability of wood and celebrates the unique characteristics of each piece.
