A clean, angular line of brass and a matte rimu top are all it took to create this simple, yet elegant Goldie side table by metalworks designers and manufacturers Powersurge (winners of the Craftsmanship category in the Interior Awards 2014). The brass has been lightly brushed and waxed, and only a light oil finish applied to the wood, enhancing the qualities and relationship between the materials.

“Using a clean form that was structurally sound, but with minimal use of materials, the Goldie was designed to move away from the rigidity of 90-degree angles and relax the form of the leg into a slight taper,” says designer Todd Stevenson.

Available from Powersurge, $890.
