Paris-based Olivier Dollé has designed a table collection called ‘’Angkor’’. Inspired by the 12th century temples at Angkor Wat in Cambodia, the tree-shaped component is made of birch, while the rest of the table is made of oak, a difference which, combined with the contrasting shades and angles of the grain, echos the temples’ blend natural and manmade elements.
