-The raised edge around the table top keeps things from sliding off.
“We found the inspiration for GUNNERN bathroom series in old English train stations and factories. Our idea was to create a series in durable lacquered steel with a timeless design that looks great in different rooms, not just the bathroom. All the pieces share rounded shapes and edges. The small cabinet has a childproof lock and the table top has a low raised edge that keeps things from sliding off. GUNNERN is for people who want eye-catching design, without compromising on smart, simple and safe function.”
