As a tribute to the column’s architectural significance, designer Simon Legald has chosen to emphasize the column’s form in his otherwise straightforward Scala design.
The elegantly floating tabletops, ranging from 60 to 130 cm in diameter, and the variable-height frames allow the versatile tables to adeptly serve as sideboards, coffee tables or meeting places in restaurants, office spaces as well as dining areas in the home. The collection’s main materials such as steel, wood, and natural stone patinates gracefully over time and radiates quality and durability for use in indoor settings.
With this table concept, Normann Copenhagen once again demonstrates the breadth of its furniture collection, satisfying multifarious needs in private homes as well as public spaces. This emphasizes the design company’s ambition of creating sustainably produced and long-lasting designs that stay relevant for generations to come.
Simon Legald graduated from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in the summer of 2012. His work consists of both small- and large scale products. Simon’s designs are often created in a dialogue between craftsmanship and industry. He also likes to incorporate the techniques that are necessary for the structure of a product into the design by highlighting them visually.
“Honesty is what makes a product understandable and is what describes the products functionality. If you understand the product, it does not need any explanation. The essence of my design is for it to be bought and used. Therefore, it has to satisfy not only the functional aspects, but also the psychological and aesthetic needs. For me simplicity describes the true identity of objects and makes them trustworthy. In my design, I try not to add any unnecessary details. I work with simplicity by highlighting the necessities instead of hiding them. It gives the product a simple and honest expression.”
