Stepped Extending Table
This collaboration with Dovetailors aimed to bring beautiful design and high-end craftsmanship together.
David and Emmanuelle had some key criteria to meet when we developed this concept.
Their knowledge of wood is second to none and a they are a pleasure to work with.
Open and Closed
Typically, extending tables compromise on their form when open. Discreetly hiding the sliding mechanism is difficult.
The stepped leg and lip detail delivers a clean linear pattern, with respectful reference to the art deco era.
Using clever engineering and geometry the table extends; and the form becomes part of the mechanism. Most importantly the visual integrity is maintained opened and closed, without compromise.
