Design by Jacob Plejdrup, 2014
After having launched the classic solid wood plank tables dk3_3 TABLE in 2009 and TREE TABLE in 2011, dk3 founder and designer Jacob Plejdrup found that it was time to invent a new design and take the plank table to the next level. He wanted to make a table based on the same design concept as the previous dk3 tables, but with a more open and light expression, letting in the brightness and air around the table. And so, the ideas for the LOWLIGHT TABLE were born.
However, it took no less than 18 months to complete all the elements of the table, before it could finally be launched in 2014. It required great craftsmanship skills, carefulness and patience from the carpenters to get all the details right and to attain a satisfactory result identical to the design sketches. And they did succeed in bringing the design ideas to life and create a table with a complex construction, yet a simple and light appearance. The LOWLIGHT TABLE is perhaps best described by Da Vinci's famous words "Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication".
The table is characterized by an open and slightly sloping base, which perfectly matches the rounded, sloping edge of the tabletop. The base in black powder coated steel ensures stability and perfect seating at the table, and the tabletop can be extended with extension leaves at any time.
In 2017, the LOWLIGHT design was extended by a new and version under the name HIGHLIGHT TABLE, with a tabletop in wild oak or wild walnut and natural, rough edges.
