Named after the unconventional cylindrical packaging in which the table is delivered, Albert Larsson designed Table in a Jar in 1959. With its distinctive three-legged frame and wooden spheres, the side table stands as an elegant example of Larsson’s industrial furniture from the 1950s. Originally, the table was manufactured at Larsson's own factory in Tibro, Sweden until 1964. Since 2014, Table in a Jar has been manufactured by Brdr. Petersen.
