Staffan Holm repurposed traditional carpentry techniques for the design of the solid-oak Alle Table, which features a structural beam on the underside recalling ancient Japanese temple architecture. In this and many other ways, the Alle Table is especially Hem: traditional modes of making reclaimed for modern manufacture; good looks and practicality given equal consideration; engineering and handwork combined; quality materials used liberally. Alle means “everyone” in German, and this table is a true reflection of the design principles we cherish.
The poetry of handcraft and the wonders of modern technology are the sources of Staffan Holm’s inspiration. The Swedish designer worked as a carpenter before entering the renowned School of Design and Crafts (HDK) in Gothenburg, where he later founded his own studio. It’s here that he realises his vision: to convey human qualities and emotions through his high-quality, beautifully made pieces.
