Designer Simon Legald was inspired by the classic trolley table which he has updated and made his own with simple, yet impactful means. Block’s rounded shape, contrasting materials and the combination of craft and industry leaves the designer’s signature on the design and gives the table its unique expression.
You can use Block as a serving trolley or side table, in the kitchen, as a bedside table, for a home bar or in the children’s room. The look of the table can easily be changed, depending on the surroundings in which you place the table and how you style it.
Material Powder-Coated Steel and Ash Wood
Size L 50 x H 64 x B 35 cm / 19.7 x 25.2 x 13.4"
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.”
