The tables are characterised by the sculpted leg. The initial idea was to make a generous stand-up table which, despite the smallness of its footprint, could cope with large table tops. It seemed to me that tables like that were lacking in the market, and I needed them for an interior architecture project I was doing with Wingårdhs. The name Kolonn (meaning: column) alludes to supporting roofs and ceilings or, in the present instance, large table tops. Oher elements the leg has in common with a column are the subtle line of base, shaft and termination, as well as vertical slits between the three-dimensionally moulded veneer strips, reminiscent of the shape and structure of the classical column. The sculptural shape is functional. It provides generous support on the floor, tapers to give legroom and lightness, and then broadens out again to take the table top. By adding more columns you can build tables of any length and with no legs getting in people’s way. Any electronics can be invisibly trunked up through the central stem.
