Design by Jess Sorel & Otto Williams, 2009.
The Denizen collection by Coalesse is an attractive alternative to traditional furnishings for elegant functionality in the home or work space. The Denizen Oval Table offers a broad surface with a clean aesthetic and slim profile. A warm, honest look and feel is conveyed with veneer that is lightly finished with a low sheen to highlight the wood grain.
The Denizen Oval Table features a brushed nickel column that sits atop an oblong, painted gunmetal matte base. An optional touch-latch access door allows for smart cord management through the column. Non-marring leveling glides have ¼" adjustment. The Denizen Oval Table ships knocked down.

WilliamsSorel is a California based design studio established by Otto Williams and Jess Sorel in 2007. Prior to launching their own firm, Otto and Jess were the creative force behind Coalesse, by Steelcase. Their designs for Coalesse won more than 20 awards, most notably for Bix and Topo, two systems, which defied conventional office furniture categories. During their tenure at Coalesse, Otto and Jess developed a passion and reputation for exploring the boundaries between work and life in an effort to humanize the modern workplace.
The designers have said "we are thinking less about categorizing office furniture and residential furniture, and thinking more about the experiences of working and living in spaces, and the artifacts you need to support both narratives simultaneously. There's really a move to allow furniture to be furniture again, as opposed to equipment. In a sense, the office is being dismantled."
Together they hold numerous design and utility patents and their work has been published in Abitare, Azure, Contract, Fast Company, I.D. Magazine, Interior Design, and Metropolis. Otto holds a BFA in Industrial Design from Rhode Island School of Design. Jess holds a BFA in Industrial Design from The California College of the Arts.View other products by WilliamsSorel
