Normann Copenhagen Pine Tables

Normann Copenhagen makes Pine side tables

Danish brand Normann Copenhagen has introduced a series of small round tables, made from pine with chunky octagonal bases.

The Pine Tables feature solid planks of the wood, selected because designer Simon Legald - who’s behind much of the brand's collection including the incredibly popular Form chairs - felt that the timber has been overlooked by the premium furniture industry in recent years.

He wanted to celebrate pine's characteristics, which he feels "represent Nordic soul and warmth", while sensibly making use of a material that grows locally in large quantities.

The pine’s grain and growth rings are therefore a prominent feature all over the table’s wide, hollow base and rounded surface. A lip running round the edge of the table top creates a contrasting soft sculptural detail and prevents items rolling away.

The tables are made in Lithuania, where pine grows in abundance. The timber can be left natural or stained in a dark grey, light grey or dark blue that allows the wood’s qualities to show through, then finished with a protective matte varnish. They’re available in two sizes and can be pushed together thanks to the different height tops.

You can pre-order now for first deliveries in March. Normann Copenhagen didn't show at any of the spring trade fairs this year, but samples are on display in Scandinavian showrooms now and the tables will be presented in Milan this April.
