A single cut along the edge of the rim of the Tray Table acts as a handle. The rim is held together by a narrow piece of smoked oak wedged vertically into the rim’s center.

Originally designed in 1970, Hans J. Wegner’s tray table with collapsible base is being reintroduced by Carl Hansen & Son. Like the original, the round, oak-edged, reversible tray is available with black and white laminate surfaces, but now is also available in a version with oak and smoked oak surfaces.

 

 

The base of the tray table consists of two solid steel frames that are joined at the center at both top and bottom by a rotatable coupling, with the vertical outer sides holding the tray in place. The base is thus collapsible and can easily be folded up as needed.

“The tray table consists of two parts – a round tray and a collapsible base – that Wegner combined in a simple, flexible solution that simultaneously imparts lightness and elegance.” says Carl Hansen & Son. “Wegner fitted the reversible round tray with a natural-colored oak rim that surrounds and holds a thin black laminate surface on one side and a white laminate surface on the other. The removable, versatile tray offers an ideal solution for light refreshments and serving. And as something entirely new, the reversible tray is now also available with light oak veneer and smoked oak veneer surfaces.”
