The first version of SOULBIRD-table was designed by Troels Grum-Schwensen, as a “one-off” for the annual SE-exhibition 2012. This prototype was crafted by quality-cabinetmaker Malte Gormsen, who also plans to manufacture the, now expanded, table-series.
In the SOULBIRD-table a significant, almost iconic and “abstract-figurative”, bird-like motif goes hand in hand with logic, clarity and simplicity in construction.
The angle-leg ensures stability, lightness and a high degree of freedom, in the sense that the same leg can be used for a variety of different shapes and sizes of tables.
This special shaping of an angle-leg might be lighter in weight and expression than ever seen before.
Lift a leg or a table and You will be amazed!
But first and foremost, it is sculptural, poetic and soul-full. Birds from Carl Henning Pedersen's – or Marc Chagall's – paintings might fly into Your mind…
When adding tables together, the symmetrical meeting of two legs makes a nice looking figure.
The table can be flat-packed and easily assembled at the site of use.
The making of the table-leg combines modern computer-milling-technology with fine craftsmanship and exclusivity.
