dining table

Drei Blatt Tisch




A dinig table to seat up to twelve people. Developed and produced in teamwork with Yumiko Egloff.


material
/ chestnut wood


This tables beauty lies not only in its shape but also in the strong connection between construction and form. The shape, a tribute to Max Bill’s Dreirundtisch is taken a step further through the use of massive wood and a construction that only allows wood joints without any screws or glue. Splitting up into fifeteen parts the table can be put together as many times as wanted for easier transport.

The splitting of the top into three lets each leaf shrink or expand freely as every solid wood does through the season changes. In the changeing with of the joint between the leafes this all woods inherit attribute is made visible. When the table is put together all the parts join to a single form. It’s like the wood joints we know from traditional carpentry: simple and pure on the outside but high in complecxitiy on the inside.
