Time-out is designed by Strand+Hvass, who also designed our successful side tables On-the-Move.
The concept behind Time-out was to create a series of coffee tables / small tables that offered a contemporary design, but at the same time could fit in many places and together with many types of furniture. Time-out comes in two sizes and colours: White, Lava grey and taupe. The designers worked a lot with making the coffee tables as optimized for transport around the world. By choosing thick water laser cut aluminium, they succeeded making a stable design that can be delivered in a flat-pack. This idea is truly in line with Cane-lines wishes to create as environmental sound solutions as possible. Time-out can both be used in pairs or as a stand alone table. If Time-out is used outdoor all year around, it is important that rain water is removed now and then, as it can cause marks in the long run.
Christina Strand (MDD) and Niels Hvass (MAA) are part of the new generation of Scandinavian designers. They believe that design in itself is a strategy that can improve the conditions of human life, the environment and personal experiences. Additionally, they believe that design can be used as a tool to develop the competitive power and economic growth of society. Their design is usercentered and deeply rooted in the Scandinavian culture. Simplicity and wellbalanced lines are the cornerstones of their work.
