Imagined after the designer’s own personal frustration with the difficulty of furniture maintenance while he was moving from place to place, the Element No.1 table explores new territory in terms of construction and assembly. Designer Simo Lahtinen states, “It is a stand against throwawayism and ‘disposable’ furniture that includes vain moving parts and does not endure disassembling.” Beautifully said!
The all-new table can easily transition from side to sofa table within one space thanks to its handle that makes it easy to carry. With all parts constructed from a singular planar sheet, and with a thoughtful approach to assembly, it elementary the need for screws, glue, and tools to put together. Oh, and it’s pretty easy on the eyes if I do say so myself.
