About

A Play Between Function and Aesthetics

The Tablo table unites function and aesthetics in a simple design. The essence of the Tablo table is the interaction between two materials with very different expressions, which combined forms a minimalistic and stylish design. The table top has a refined, sharp edge which contrasts with the rigorous expression of the tabletop. The result is a minimalistic table without redundant details. 

The name, Tablo, refers to the English 'table' and the French 'tableau', the latter meaning a scenic, organised arrangement. 

Nicholai Wiig Hansen says: “For me, it is paramount that function, materials and aesthetics all come together. The design needs to both be useful and solve a basic need - without compromising the visual expression. Being easy to assemble is therefore part of Tablo's function.”

Nicholai Wiig Hansen

Nicholai Wiig Hansen has had his own design studio since he was 26 years old. When Nicholai designs he uses himself as the target group. Proportions are extremely important in his work and details are not added from a decoration perspective but only if they serve some kind of purpose.

He is inspired by everything that surrounds him and especially art, food, nature and machinery. When Nicholai Wiig Hansen designs a new product, he always thinks the product to end in his head before sketching a single drawing. Everything from production to form and all the way to the end-user perspective.
