Prize(s)3rd Place in Office Equipment / Furnishings/Modules
Entry Description

“Modern aesthetics combined with functionality for everyday life” would be a way to describe this table with a few words.
Launched in 2014 the KT11 design presents a delicate steel tube construction that is carefully hand crafted from high grade stainless steel or (painted in different colours) of crude steel. This support structure allows maximum leg room for chair seating as well as corner bench arrangements. The table tops are available in various sizes with various edges and different types of wood (oak, walnut and ash). The simple idea of a truss, and its expression through elegant design is the distinguishing feature of this jewel for your home or office. Floating on top of a reduced and delicate steel truss is an elegant, but simple, wood slab - reminiscent of an acacia tree canopy found in the African Serengeti; Art and nature, in harmony.
