Turn Table

The Turn table is a small yet functional table in wood and steel. The name Turn refers to the rotational movement used to adjust the height of its round tabletop, gently raising it up from its bell-shaped steel base.

With a minimum height of 41.5 cm and a maximum height of 66.5 cm, this small table can be easily adjusted to suits its existing surroundings. Beyond acting as a visual ballast to the light tabletop, the distinctive base also serves as a stabilizing center of gravity and reflects the way in which Turn has been clearly designed around its function.

Turn is well-suited for use as a coffee or side table and can be placed on its own or in a group of small tables in a living room or lounge area. The ash veneer tabletop is lacquered in the same color as the steel base. The table comes in three monochrome tones of black, dark gray and a lighter, warm gray, allowing Turn to blend in elegantly with different interior designs.

Simon Legald

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.”
