Wood table and bench
The Wood Table exudes an aura of subtle elegance: made of solid wood, its construction achieves maximum stability with a minimum of structural elements. Distinguished by its archetypal form and precisely balanced proportions, it appears at first glance as though it has always existed, as if we’ve seen it countless times before. And yet the Wood Table is indeed unique: its legs, made of solid wood with an oval profile, are horizontally connected by strong aluminium bridges that ensure the table’s stability and prevent the frameless solid wood top from warping. The rounded edges on the bottom of the table top are not just a gesture of added comfort. Depending on the viewing angle, they give the table top an especially slender appearance, thus emphasising the elegance of the overall design. This feature is also found on the Wood Bench, making the two pieces an ideal combination for a variety of settings. The Wood Table is 90 cm wide and available in several lengths (200, 220, 240, 260 cm) and different types of wood (natural oak, core smoked oak or American walnut).
Sitting benches had long fallen out of fashion – especially in home interiors. However, over the past few years they have been experiencing a revival as people rediscover their usefulness for group seating. The Wood Bench, designed by Edward and Jay, is a robust and elegant bench made of solid wood, whose aesthetic and structural features correspond to their Wood Table. The two pieces make an ideal pairing, but thanks to the bench’s archetypal form it can also be attractively combined with other tables or used as a solo object in a wide variety of interior settings. The Wood Bench is 41 cm wide and available in several lengths (200, 220, 240, 260 cm) and different types of wood (natural oak, core smoked oak or American walnut). The rounded bottom edges of the seat are also found on the Wood Table.
