The Log Table is archetypal, its clean lines and refined silhouette contrived by designer Julien Renault, whose intention was to make a quintessential table for work or play. Its streamlined design cleverly conceals its engineering: a veneer-covered honeycomb core keeps the tabletop light, allowing it to span a great distance. Purposefully robust legs anchor the table and give it stability, and their simple screw connections make assembly straightforward. The ever-so-pleasing curved edge and rounded lines of the legs gently soften the overall effect.
A graduate from prestigious ECAL in Lausanne, Julien Renault started working as an assistant to a fellow Hem collaborator, Sylvain Willenz right after his studies. With a handful of awards under his belt, Renault established his own practice in 2011. Inspired by everyday objects, his designs are clean, simple and minimalistic, with the Punched Metal collection being the best example of his approach.
