Drawing its inspiration from a Copenhagen trademark, the bicycle, The Lug Table is designed with a particular attention to detail. The name of the table, Lug, comes from the small but vital part of the bicycle that has been used since the 1920s to hold the frame together. This idea was the starting point, and just like in a bicycle, the craftmanship of the Lug Table lies in the detail.
Designer Simon Legald used brass for the screws and the lug itself. These brass details contrast the monochromatic look of the simple steel frame and pays tribute to the craftmanship of the 1920s vintage bicycles. The mechanical parts and the curve of the legs comes together in this table, making it a balance between masculine construction and feminine elegance.
The tabletop plate is made from hardened, colored glass which gives the table an exclusive look while still being resilient. The Lug Table comes in warm gray and black and is made in two sizes. The small table is great as a bedside table, while the large one makes for an ideal coffee table. The Lug Table works well on its own or together as a set in living rooms or lounge areas.
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."
