The Allez series is the latest offering from Normann Copenhagen. This versatile table and chair duo is designed to provide years of use either indoors or outdoors. The Allez table is characterized by sleek, elegant lines from all vantage points and a cylindrical cast iron 3 or 4-legged pedestal base discretely shaped to mimic the curvature of the Allez chair legs. Adjustable feet have been incorporated in the design, making it possible to stabilize it on uneven surfaces. Allez offers flexibility with the choice of either circular or square tabletops made from a broad assortment of materials. Inspired by traditional café tables, Allez includes two tabletop options that are ideal for outdoor use: marble and lightweight, 4mm-thin solid stainless steel. The tabletop is also available in black or natural oak veneer. The many possible combinations allow for an Allez ensemble to compliment the existing decor.
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."
