For designer Christian Troels the idea behind the CORDUROY TABLE was to create a table with a richness of details to be explored.
The rounded edge of the table top is inspired by the soft bending of the steel tubes, and the angles of the legs make the table top look like it is floating in the air. The legs consist of four black powder coated steel tubes, all changing direction and then gathering in one strong unity, which gives the table both strength and a light expression at the same time. Each leg has an adjustment screw in diamond cut brass, stainless steel or black powder coated stainless steel - a delicate little detail that makes a beautiful contrast to the black steel tubes.
