Block table

By Normann Copenhagen


  • Description

    Inspired by the well-known tray table, Danish designer, Simon Legald, has combined craftsmanship and industry in the design of Block – a mobile side table on wheels with a light and airy feel. The table is rectangular and is easy to move around using one of its four handles, which are a natural extension of the table's legs.
    Block is a simplified, updated version of the well-known tray table. The hard steel is softened by its rounded shape and counterbalanced by the warmth of the wood, while the matching casters allow for a cohesive feel.
    Simon Legald explains: "For me, designing is a game between craftsmanship and industry, and both elements need to come together. Block is a simplification and modernisation of the well-known tray table. It is a side table with wheels and an alternative to the traditional coffee table."
    The Block table is a versatile piece of furniture with a countless number of applications, e.g. as a side table, coffee table, tea trolley, serving trolley, bedside table, bar table, in the kitchen, office or in the child's room. The feel changes depending

    Simon Legald

    Simon Legald graduated from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in the summer of 2012. His work consists of both small- and large scale products. 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 doesn’t 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.
