Vonnegut/Kraft - Relevé dining table

Ballerinas inspire timber dining table

The curve of a ballerina’s foot from heel to toe inspired the sculptural legs of this wooden dining table created by New York brand Vonnegut/Kraft.

Called Relevé after its namesake position in ballet, the legs appear to bend under the weight of its thick surface. Made from solid white oak, each leg curves out as it reaches the corner of the table and has a rounded edge to match the rounded corners of the surface.

The flat edges of the legs are angled inwards and there’s a cross-shaped structure on the underside of the tabletop that slots into the legs to support the surface.

Brand founders Katrina Vonnegut and Brian Kraft work with local craftsmen to produce furniture and lighting in their Brooklyn workshop.

The table was on show at cooperative show space Colony in New York, alongside a collection of furniture and lighting from independent American designers.
