Design by Jeppe Utzon, 2015
The Jeppe Utzon TABLE #1 balances a sublime contrast between the naked wooden material and the selected crafted details. With sizes up to 300 cm, the table is robust enough to serve a natural gathering point in both meeting rooms and dining halls, yet detailed enough to stand out.
The table has a simplicity that allows the beautiful natural characteristics of the wild wood to take the centre stage. And with the small edge of the table legs and the remarkable extension leaves the table has some exclusive details, highlighting the beauty of the wood. The table is made in a classic solid wood construction, and beneath the tabletop there is a discrete steel cable, which can be adjusted with an ordinary wrench to achieve stability and prevent deflection over the years.
Jeppe Utzon has achieved international acclaim as an architect and designer, and the cross-creative DNA comes from no stranger. Jeppe Utzon's grandfather was the famed Danish architect Jørn Utzon - the architect and designer of the Sydney Opera House. As his grandfather, Jeppe Utzon allows detail and totality to work together in a unified expression that has genuine global appeal, and this design philosophy is truly embodied in the Jeppe Utzon Table #1.
