ALHENA is a limited edition extendable side table that is part of our CELESTINE collection.
Its abstract shape takes inspiration from an evocative celestial body: the bright star Alhena, which is located at the left foot of the Gemini constellation. The name Alhena comes from the Arabic word الهنعه (Al Han’ah), usually translated as meaning the brand on a camel’s neck but interpreted by the Persian astronomer Al-Biruni to mean ‘winding’, as though the stars of the constellation were weaving around one another or curving away from the central star.
Alhena is constructed from sheets of very thin metal foil which weave and extend over one another in homage to their celestial muse.
