Bermuda dining table

2007-02-2620-a.jpg

The wish to place as many friends as possible at one table was the underlying idea for the Bermuda dining table. In his search for a visually reduced look and high structural austerity, the designer developed this construction, which is characterised by a clear and straight form. And yet the table appears to hover in space thanks to the finely defined table top on simple steel triangles. The triangular shape of the legs allows several people to sit at the table without limiting their legroom. Bermuda is available in three sizes, 200 x 90 x 72 cm, 240 x 90 x 72 cm and 280 x 90 x 72 cm.

2007-02-2650-a.jpg

by-number #7 (Faqir) is a new trivet made of silicone. Its fresh and cool design is a humorous attention getter on the dining table at the same time protecting the table surface. The mere appearance of the “bed of nails” seems to keep away the hot pot or pan from the surface. As with a real bed of nails several “nails” are necessary to place the objects safely. The trivet is available in red and black and it is dishwasher-safe.
