Stine Gam and Enrico Fratesi, a duo architects behind the Copenhagen-based design studio GamFratesi have created this bold, black-stained ash side table whose form resembles that of a traditional sewing box or a picnic basket. Released this year by the French manufacturer Ligne Roset, the design encompasses a generous storage compartment located beneath the tabletop.

More about ‘Picnic’:

 

‘Like the original, Picnic is raised on short legs with a handle looped over the top so it’s easy to move around. The storage section is evocative of the traditional sewing box, but when one turns away from the original function (the first priority is no longer necessarily to arrange one’s sewing kit) and updates the materials (black-stained ash replaces the more traditional oak or cherry), it transcends the more ordinary references to take on another dimension altogether, one which is both familiar and strange. Picnic’s familiar, domestic character is underlined by the softly curved treatment of the storage chest as well as its support feet/handle which enables it to be moved about with ease.’
