The Bishop shares its eponymous chess piece’s love for diagonal lines.
Both a pedestal table and a stool, it is available in 18 colours and can be used outdoors and indoors. Created in 1999, the Bishop has become India Mahdavi’s statement piece for which she has designed numerous accessories to expand her range. The addition of a glazed ceramic tray, transforms the Bishop into a veritable side table. And the Peanut, a tray made from walnut, can be placed on two Bishops to make one.
