Design by Christian Troels, 2023
The elegant coffee table GROOVE COFFEE TABLE OVAL is a part of the exclusive GROOVE series, created by the Danish designer Christian Troels. The cooperation between dk3 and Christian Troels started with the launch of CORDUROY TABLE in 2018, and accelerated in 2019, where Christian Troels and dk3 founder Jacob Plejdrup developed the anniversary table TEN TABLE. Today, the TEN TABLE makes up an essential part of the dk3 collection and has almost achieved classic status.
Like the TEN TABLE, the GROOVE series has been created on the basic principle of letting the natural beauty of the solid wood play a major role, highlighting the unique design details. Details, which have been adjusted and refined through the entire design process and created with equal parts of passion and accuracy. For example, the grooves on the table edge are made with a special custom-made milling head, invented, and built by Christian Troels.
With a thickness of five centimetres, the impressive tabletop is in a league of its own, when it comes to coffee tables. But despite its heaviness and imposing dimensions, the table still has a lightness and elegance, emphasized by the thin conical legs and the distinctive grooves. The table comes in length 120, 140 or 160 cm, and all three versions are available in different leg heights. When developing the GROOVE COFFEE TABLE OVAL, designer Christian Troels decided that the table should be delivered with eight predrilled holes for table legs. This gives the possibility to place the legs in two different positions, which, in combination with the different sizes, enables various visual expressions.
The pure lines and remarkable details make the GROOVE series a perfect fusion of natural aesthetics and sophisticated design.
