Intersection Coffee Table by Thomas Merlin


Designer Thomas Merlin about project: “The concept comes from the idea of connection between the two elements which make up a table: the table top on the one hand, and the table leg on the other hand. The particular drawing of the table allows to fix these 2 elements by using a crossbar, which also serves as a carrying handle. This makes the small table easy to move in the house.

The table is easy to take apart. It is composed of 2 identical metal sheets, 3 oak crossbars and and 4 identical oak table legs. When disassembled, the whole does not exceed a bigger volume than 50 x 35 x 8 cm. Relations between flatness and volume, the inside and the outside, mobility and stability are some of the ideas crossing in this table.”
