The Sinus trestle legs designed by Daniel Lorch for L&Z are made out of a single piece of tubular steel, which is bent into its ideal static shape. Due to the optimal structural design of the steel tube, the Sinus is extremely stable, but with the minimal
use of material, it is light and easy to handle. The open shape of the trestles allow lots of legroom, and since the tabletop is detachable, the length of the table can be easily adjusted, changes in room layouts can quickly be made, and they can be stac
ked to save space. If you want to screw the tabletop on permanently, there is a hole drilled underneath the support pads.
The design was developed with a concept that took the elementary architectural parameters of a table as the point of departure
: bearing and supporting, legs and surface, trestle and table top. What useful modifications or enhancements of these basic preconditions can be made to suit the needs of modern life? For instance, how can we give a structure simplicity, material efficien
cy, stability and flexibility? What benefit does the separation of table top and legs bring? What improvements can we make to current solutions that take this approach? For example, can we reduce the production and material costs of the Eiermann Table? Ar
e there more stable, higher quality but equally simple alternatives to the classical folding trestle?
A standard paperclip served as a template for achieving maximum product value with minimal production effort, while also featuring a distinctive desi
gn: A single curved piece of wire, simply bent into its final form after being cut to size. The conceptual translation of this method lead to the idea of how a contemporary trestle could be designed.
