Design by Christian Troels, 2023
The sophisticated Corduroy design
has been developed for dk3 by the Danish designer Christian Troels and was
first launched as dining table back in 2018. The basic idea behind the design
was to create a table with a high level of details to be explored – based on
the principle “the more you study the table, the more details you discover”.
In line with the original design, Christian Troels has now developed Corduroy Table #2, which visually has a more light and soft expression than its
predecessor. First, this is reflected in the thickness of the tabletop, which
has been changed to 30 mm instead of the original 34 mm. Second, Christian Troels
has chosen to let the soft, rounded edge profile encircle the entire table
edge, which gives the table a beautiful organic form.
The light expression is further underlined by the soft bending and simple construction of the table legs. Each of the four legs consists of four black powder coated steel tubes. At the top, the tubes have a soft bend, where they split and branch in various directions. At the bottom, the tubes are gathered in one single unit, each with an adjustment screw in either solid brass or stainless steel. A delicate little detail that makes a beautiful contrast to the black steel tubes.
