The intricate detailing of the 'Plug and Play' table leg by Studiokepenic

Next up in our imm cologne 2012 preview series we would like to introduce you to this novel, customisable modular table system devised by two young designers; Mia Kepenek and Nicholas Frei of the recently-established Zurich-based label Studiokepenic. As its name aptly suggest, the table design enables the user to convert the object from a coffee into a dining table without a hitch but by ‘simply by plugging together the shapely, turned leg elements.’ The table will be presented as part of the D3 Design Talents show at the fair which opens on 16 January.

'Plug and Play' tables by Studiokepenic

More about the design:


‘Plug & Play is a system of table leg and table top components that can be combined easily and freely. The table height can be varied in order to create either a dining or a coffee table simply by plugging together the shapely, turned leg elements. Plug & Play combines traditional woodworking with new form and function in a striking manner.


Table leg elements:

Oiled ash, with powder-coated steel sockets. Height 370 mm, Ø up to 70 mm.


Table top:

Lightwood and beech, white matte varnish. Different sizes available.’
