Wood offers infinite possibilities and is still one of the best materials to use from an ecological perspective. Offecct has explored these possibilities with British designer Michael Sodeau, creating the wooden table Archipelago. A table with unique outlines, shaped by genuine craftsmanship. “The idea of Archipelago was to create a series of surfaces almost like small islands that furniture could be arranged around. The tables are made using a craft based process, with attention to details such as angled edges and the use of several different diameters. Archipelago is pared back in its expression, unwanted and unnecessary parts are removed, reducing thickness so everything has a very light feel to it”, says Michael Sodeau. Archipelago is a wooden table designed in three sizes and two different heights with a set of wheels under- neath. Its calm expression and tactile surface makes it equally suitable for use in an ever-changing office environment and in the privacy of your home. Alone or in a group, as a side table or a coffee table, the design of Archipelago meets many different needs. “Offecct has an artisan approach to the design and production process and have, in a way, managed to bridge the gap between the hand-made and the mass- produced, which fits very nicely in an environmental and ethical sense”, concludes Michael Sodeau.
