Table brothers…

Enjoy the flexibility of form and use in table brothers. In 2012 the design was one out of ten nominees for the ‘Noordelijke Ontwerpprijs’

A set of two tables were adults and kids can enjoy their lives together all day with eat, work and play. I am very proud of the functionality of the two tables together and the looks that are simple but elegant.

Were working, playing and eating not always mix well together, in this  table you easily remove your laptop and other stuff under the top-blade to make space for breakfast or dinner.

I created the table after remarks of my son. He never liked to sit in a high chair (or should I say he hated it?). With the smaller table, a child can sit on a normal chair and eat ‘as a grown-up’. The minute I finished the table, my son sat down on the smaller table and said: “this is my table and the other one is for my big brother”. So you can imagine why this table is called ‘brothers’. The smaller table can also be used as a side-table and has the perfect height to eat your meal while watching TV

This is a ‘work in progress’ creation. I expect and hope to see it in production this year.

 

Table Simson…

Inspired by the muscle man Samson (in Dutch Simpson) with three themes in his live: God, Muscles and Women.

A big 120 cm round table to use by maximum 6 persons. Sharing light from above it spreads through the legs and the plexiglass dividers. The three parts in the table have a symbolic background: Sharing a table together and leaving one seat open for the unexpected guest (Elijah). My own heritage inspired me in a way in my latest table-design ‘Brothers’. You could say this is really old stuff (almost vintage): I made this table in 1990!
