Inspired by truss structures in engineering, the First Table is a visual conundrum. Bold and exciting to the eye, yet functional and sure-footed in use, it is a statement piece with a distinct identity. Its light silhouette and simple material allow it to blend easily into any interior. The seemingly complex construction is in fact very easy and logical to assemble.

Almost furniture was founded in 2014 by Svetoslav Michev, Hristo Stankushev and Stefan Minkoff, founders of architecture and design studio dontDIY. Later on Yulia Petrova and Plamen Shalafov joined the team as Оperations manager and Marketing manager. Almost is based in Sofia, Bulgaria. The brand’s designs were awarded by the Ghost Project Exhibition at the Mikser festival in Beograd, 2013. Some of the brand’s products are the First table, the First Side table, the 2nd shelf, the Third shelf and the 4th armchair.
