Who Says A Desk Needs 4 Legs? By Long Tran 06/15/2007 Alexandre Boucher believes you only need one. A tabletop is carefully balanced on one large offset pillar. This minimalistic approach creates a sense of openness above and below the table, as if it were levitating.

Think forklifts. Even if that column weighed 1000 lbs, the table would tip over the minute some jackass decided to sit on the end of it. DenniZ says: 06/17/2007 at 11:45 am that one pillar needs to be very very heavy if you ask me… I don’t think it’s designed for sitting on, but you do want it to resist pushing off while standing up, which creates a force of 20kg minimum. But it looks lovely and ou don’t have to carry it around anywhere, so just place it and Enjoy! Link Entire Director says: 06/18/2007 at 7:16 am Not suitable for a heavy stuff to put on it. Maybe it can be coffee table. Link Entire Directory says: 06/18/2007 at 7:16 am Not suitable for a heavy stuff to put on it.

Thai says: 04/24/2008 at 9:27 am Great design and idea. But again, the base would have to be very heavy. As well, the table top would have to be very stiff, and along with that the added weight of such materials to prevent flex. powers says: 11/24/2008 at 3:00 pm Minimalist. Minimalist approach. Minimalist. I love the design by the way. See also “Surface Table” from Established & Sons. bob says: 03/27/2009 at 8:22 am If it flared out at the bottom it would be a lot more stable joshua says: 04/25/2009 at 7:11 pm where do i get one??? The only problem is that the base would have to be very heavy in order to support the weight on the actual table… fix that small problem and i’ll buy one! Brennan says: 06/19/2009 at 8:41 am I have to agree with Mr. Zilla at the top of the comments there, the base weight is almost irrelevant if it has such a small footprint on the floor. You would have to flare it out significantly or bolt the table to the floor securely (both suggested above) I love the style, though, fabulous. Olivia says: 05/01/2015 at 2:23 pm Fanntastic blog!
