Tension Table

Dock is the result of designer Alexandre Pain’s reflection on the themes of simplicity and lightness. The stripped-down side table avoids glue, screws, and dowels and instead uses elastic bands and tension to fix the legs to the body. The unconventional construction not only cuts back on hardware costs but also means that assembly and disassembly can be repeated without compromising quality.

    Nice craftsmanship, but i don’t get it.

    Seems like more of a freestanding shelf than a table. A table has more of a flat top to it. Just change the name!
