Zanat Hide & Seek Containers And Coffee/side Tables


Zanat Hide & Seek Containers And Coffee/side Tables


Designed By Monica Förster

These extraordinary sculptural and hand-carved round objects, entirely made in solid maple, come in three different shapes and sizes, designed to work as an attractive set of side tables and containers.

Below the sculpted container lids lies container space where objects that one needs close to hand but out of site can be stored.

All wood used in Zanat’s products comes from sustainably managed forests or private fruit orchards (walnut and cherry). FSC certificates for forest-originating wood are available upon request. Moreover, in 2021 Zanat undertook a commitment to plant three new trees for every tree we used to produce our products. Color variations and small healthy knots in wood are indications of material authenticity and cannot be considered a defect.

Wood is a hygroscopic material which absorbs and sheds moisture to adopt to the humidity of the environment in which it is placed and it expands or shrinks as a consequence.

To minimize checking and cracking, all Zanat products should be kept indoors (outdoors use is OK if protected from precipitation and direct sunlight) and air humidity should not be less than 40% or more than 70%. Humidity outside this range is not optimal for human health and can result in product damage.


Zanat provides a five-year limited warranty against manufacturing defects in standard products (materials and workmanship). Wear, tear and product damages is not covered under this warranty. The claims will not cover minor checks in wood, which result from relative humidity changes. Cracks in wood that result as a consequence of air humidity outside the above-indicated safe range, discolorations resulting from direct exposure of products to sunlight or otherwise improper use will not be covered under the warranty. Claims from end users must be submitted to the dealer from whom the product was purchased in order to be considered.
