Studio Dreimann, the Hannover-based design practice established in 2010 by former fellow students Jonas Ette, Simon Kux and Tim Prigge, has created this beechwood side table called ‘Little Ben’. The design was inspired by the form of a traditional English tea table and it will be presented at Copenhagen Design Week – CODE 11 – next week (1 – 4 September).
More about ‘Little Ben':
‘Little Ben is inspired by the shape of an old English tea table. During our research we had noticed that because of its size, small side tables for living rooms allow either place for coffee and tea, or serve as a repository for the daily newspaper and books.
‘Our aim was to accommodate both possibilities in a occasional table and also maintain the classic elegant shape of a traditional coffee table. It was resolved by taking a recess in the table leg, that allows to collect upright or rolled magazines. The occasional table is made out of beech wood with small construction tricks by classic wood turner crafts.’
