Mesa Side Table & Planter designed by the founder of Phase Design - Reza Feiz, is the hand-sanded fiberglass shell with an automotive polyurethane gloss finish, it is also suitable for outdoor use.
The challenge of design is to create something that is unique and funct ional, but above all has a nuanced and memorable personality. I like my work to be simple yet ingenious; to be understated yet be able to stand out and get not iced.
The inspiration for the mesa side tables come from the word that they are named after mesa – land formation, less extensive than a plateau, having steep walls and flat top. From there, the added element of tension and surprise was created by twisting the surface as it comes up. This torque creates a different visual experience at every angle. These hand scultped fiberglass shells are painted with high gloss automotive enamel with a clear coat finish and will be available in cement gray, true blue, and brilliant black. The mesa was designed with two purposes and intended uses in mind- once turned over, the mesa will become a sculptural planter, suitable for indoor or outdoor use. This adds to our roster of unique architectural and sculptural planters. Please specify if mesa is to be used as side table or planter upon ordering.

+ About Phase Design – Reza Feiz
Phase Design was founded in Los Angeles in 2000 by award winning self-taught designer Reza Feiz. Working within his philosophy of “strength in simplicity,” he uses solid woods, metal and fiberglass in luxurious finishes to realize his simple, yet dynamic furniture, lighting and tabletop designs. With all of Reza’s creations, he seeks to balance delicate physicality and practical functionality.
He has shown his work worldwide gaining international attention, and has been acquired by some of the most discriminating clients ranging from Kiehl’s Since 1851 to Tom Ford. Reza has been featured in a long list of publications, starting with Surface Magazine where Reza was named a “tag team” member – one of a group of select young designers who represent the leading edge of discovery in design. Los Angeles Magazine named Feiz as one of the city’s hottest designers in its July 2006 issue, Flaunt magazine dubbed Reza a ‘Style Pioneer’ and more recently Fabrik magazine named Reza as ‘LA designer who influences world design’.
Reza continually strives to capture the modernist tenets of proportion and clarity in his work and draws upon both California and the greater global community of design for inspiration. He is influenced by the work of modernist architects like Pierre Koenig, Richard Neutra and John Lautner, yet he imbues his work with a 21st century edge, making it relevant to the constantly evolving contemporary environment.
