Entry Description: KT8 This table created sheer euphoria with designers, woodworking professionals and admirers of unobtrusive Scandinavian design at its introduction in 2014 in Vienna. Presented was a solid wood table supported by a simple delicate wood truss, made from your choice of oak or American walnut. The use of traditional wood joinery, in combination with a well-conceived construction method, allowed for a 20% reduction in the wood cross sections that one would ordinarily expect on such leg structures. The clarity of design and the deliberate restraint to the essential averts superficial attention: modest, sophisticated and calm in nature, this table makes a point that great design does not tolerate hierarchies or compromise in the interaction of form and function.
