Object Table 

WoodAward Winner  

Object Table by is an assembly of two forms: a slanted upright curve and a circle. Sculptural and functional elements have been merged to provoke curiosity and question the distinction between object and a piece of furniture.

“I have always been inspired by sculptures that make us question why or how something stands up. I designed Object Table on a quest to invite this puzzling wonder into the spaces we live in.”

- Designer, Ellen Svenningsen

The table received praise from design critics having won last year’s Wood Awards, New Designer category. The Wood Awards celebrates excellence in British architecture and product design in wood. The judges were particularly impressed by the design’s potential for further material development.

After the award a version of the table was made in steel, and the two, PLY and STEEL, each have different qualities. STEEL enhances the tables structural strength  so that it can hold a person’s bodyweight, becoming a stool/table hybrid, as well as opening the possibility for being an outdoor piece. The wooden version, Ply, remain warm, tactile and lightweight for the indoor space.

Ply is made from a BB Grade Birch Ply laminate. It comes in two finishes: Ebony Black or True Ply. Ebony Black is naturally blackened with a steel-wool/vinegar mix and tea, both oiled. Steel uses a 10mm bend-rolled mild steel sheet, patinated black and finished with wax.
