Before the British drew the border between Afghanistan and Pakistan with the Durand Line in 1896, the region shared many linguistic, social and cultural connections. Despite the border much of this shared heritage remains today. The table top symbolises these enduring connections through the shared geography which straddles either side of the border.
The sleek design of the legs are formed to compliment the delicate lines of the table top.
