The furniture whisperer
by Jasmin Jouhar | 4/24/2018
In the exhibition “Typecasting. An Assembly of Iconic, Forgotten and New Vitra Characters,” Robert Stadler lends furniture a voice. Let’s take a listen!
The Wood Table has an elegant, understated design: made of solid wood, its construction achieves maximum stability with a minimum of structural elements. Distinguished by its archetypal form and precisely balanced proportions, it appears at first glance as though it has always existed, as if we‘ve seen it countless times before. And yet the Wood Table is indeed unique: its legs, made of solid wood with an oval profile, are horizontally connected by strong aluminium bridges that ensure the table‘s stability and prevent the frameless solid wood top from warping.
The rounded edges on the bottom of the table top are not just a gesture of added comfort. Depending on the viewing angle, they give the table top an especially slender appearance, thus emphasising the elegance of the overall design. This feature is also found on the Wood Bench, making the two pieces an ideal combina- tion for a variety of settings. The Wood Table is 90 cm wide and available in several lengths (200, 220, 240, 260 cm) and different types of wood (natural oak, core smoked oak or American walnut).
