It’s no secret that I love a clever bit of multi-tasking and this powder-coated steel coffee table is just that. Designed by Christian Flindt for Design Letters & Friends, the pale grey table comes with a strong blue or dark grey folding handle.
It works as a side table, coffee table or bedside table, the top is large enough to accommodate a lap top and a cup of coffee which makes it perfect for the sofa office. A place of which I am inordinately fond.
Design Letters & Friends is a small Danish company founded by Mette Thompson out of a passion for all things graphic and typograpy related. The first designs was a set of wooden letters followed shortly afterwards by the discovery of a long lost font by Arne Jacobsen, which has been added to a range of homewares which you can see in the images.
I also liked the press release which announced the release of this table and as press releases so rarely raise a smile. I thought I would share it with you. Well, it is the weekend:
“In a couple weeks it will be midsummer’s day – a big deal in the Nordic calendar (mainly because weather-wise it’s often downhill from here). So, we have to be patient while they all go on about it for a bit… The Danes and Norwegians celebrate with bonfires and witch burning (not really) and the Swedes jump around pretending to be frogs (really).”
I leave you with that thought …
