TABLE by LABT

This table didn’t originate at the drawing board, it was taken from your memory. Didn’t your grandmother have one? But making it from inexpensive plywood adds distinction. Especially the process of turning the legs from a stack of boards produces a dramatic texture. Les Ballets C de la B commissioned a table that can easily be moved by a single person or even taken along. Together with Serge from the dance company Labt came up with legs that have a wooden helical thread that screws into the tabletop, reminiscent of piano legs. A node was removed from the wood where a twig was inserted into the cavity, as if it shots there after all. We wanted to make a simple, cheap table using only panel materials. We used to think of a table as ‘a board on four sticks’. But in this table all components should be panels. Frank found us beautifully veneered softwood plywood from Poland. We cut it like a sheet of cotton is cut for jeans, and then assembled it. These jeans are stiff enough to stand without anyone wearing them.

Labt, a studio for furniture design. Fresh ideas are issued in small editions.
Labt is a glasshouse next to a workshop specializing in customized furniture. The glasshouse is a quiet space. The pressure of deadlines doesn’t enter there. Collaborations with designers are allowed to develop for long spans of time. Ideas are fostered to germinate, grow and take root. What has sufficiently matured leaves the glasshouse as an open edition to be placed in our shop window. Once the product is placed on the market, new collaborations come into being for producing and distributing it.
