There is something both earthily Nordic and expressively avant-garde about Normann Copenhagen’s collection of small tables that go by the name Pine. The tables are made from solid pine in a characterful and sculptural design.
The choice of pinewood sets the tone for the design of the Pine tables. The tables gain a pleasing organic quality from the wood’s distinctive grain, and the overlooked wood species is given new life in the playful form. Designer Simon Legald explains:
“In furniture design Pine has been a forgotten wood variety for quite some time. That is a pity, because pine is certainly not without its qualities. For me, the wood’s fiery growth rings and characteristic aroma represent Nordic soul and warmth. Not least, it makes a lot of sense to use a material that can be found locally in large quantities.”
With its voluminous octangular foot, Pine can lend prominence and vigour to any room. Its weighty body is gently opposed by the tabletop’s narrow, rounded edge frame, adding a visual lightness to the solid wooden design. The wood is presented in its natural form, or with a coloured wood stain, which allows the grain to show through.
Use the larger version as a coffee table or combine it with the smaller table that is elegantly tucked in underneath. All versions are finished with a protective matte varnish.

Simon’s designs are often created in a dialogue between craftsmanship and industry. He also likes to incorporate the techniques that are necessary for the structure of a product into the design by highlighting them visually.
“Honesty is what makes a product understandable and is what describes the products functionality. If you understand the product, it does not need any explanation. The essence of my design is for it to be bought and used. Therefore, it has to satisfy not only the functional aspects, but also the psychological and aesthetic needs. For me simplicity describes the true identity of objects and makes them trustworthy. In my design, I try not to add any unnecessary details. I work with simplicity by highlighting the necessities instead of hiding them. It gives the product a simple and honest expression.”
