Steady is a modern take on the classic nesting tables, made from powder-coated steel and aluminum. For the design of Steady, designer Hans Hornemann has taken inspiration from the Romanesque architecture. The view in through the arches of a Romanesque arcade is interpreted in the tables’ arched legs, and in the repetition of contours as the two tables meet.
The table's lines shift from sharp to soft in a formal twist that gives the minimal design a dynamic appearance. The recurring arches are counteracted by narrow profiles in a vigorous construction that stands out as a central part of Steady’s visual expression. A wide steel frame and over-sized cylinders fix the table's elements, making it shapely, strong and steady.

“In my opinion design should be a balance between an aesthetic minimalism and functionality with a user friendly experience. As a designer I aim to be true to the material used in order to enhance and bring out its natural qualities and characteristics. I value clean and minimalistic lines that add a new spin to the classic design. In creating a design, I think it’s important to start from scratch and bring a new contribution to the products idiom, expression or functionality.”
