BASE casts the iconic shape of a table, as straight forward as a child's drawing.
The tables light Scandinavian simplicity makes it the perfect base to build an interior design concept around, with a versatile extruded aluminium frame that makes it suitable for both professional and private environments. The BASE table has been designed with the maximum level of attention to detail and quality and is produced to withstand continual robust use.
Table base is made from extruded aluminium with an extra durable acrylic paint. Table top in either furniture board with laminate surface and ABS edges or table top in plywood with linoleum surface (only in black).
Clean the table by wetting a cloth in hot water and a mild mixture of universal detergent or washing-up liquid. Never use strong chemicals. Water and fat may leave stains and should be removed right away. For linoleum versions it is recommended to use a linoleum polish on the surface 2-3 times a year.

MIKA TOLVANEN ON HIS DESIGN PHILOSOPHY
“The objective is not only to design products but rather look for occasions that need design. What really defines objects is how we use them not what they appear to be. Design should not be the one that requires attention by being special.”
MIKA TOLVANEN ON NEW NORDIC DESIGN
“The way of doing design is always very personal for each designer. But the way we dwell up here has penetrated our lives and the way we design. Nordic design has always been here and there have been no gaps between periods. Only the means of manufacturing have developed, making new design more exciting.”
