I wanted the table to have its own character but not be imposing. The design aim was to reduce the table to its archetypal form. The functional simplicity of Base is supported by behind-the-scenes technology to create a slim, lightweight and strong table. At the same time, Base is friendly and welcoming in the way it looks. The result is a versatile metal frame table that can be extended into a very large conference table or just as easily used as a simple dining room table.
MIKA TOLVANEN ON THE DESIGN
Made for robust daily use, the Base Table has an aluminium frame covered with acrylic paint. A straight-forward table that will look good in any personal or professional space, the rectangular Base Table acts as the foundation of a room. Its focus on materials, quality and simplicity showcases the Scandinavian design tradition and makes it adaptable to any area.
A high quality and versatile table series, that casts the iconic shape of a table, as straight forward as a child’s drawing. The tables have a lightness in its design that adds an interesting contrast to the table’s strength and robust materials.
