A collaboration with Sir Kenneth Grange.
The Spring table is characterised by clarity of form brought about by its honest simplicity and economical use of materials.
Spring’s brackets are crafted from aluminium, a superbly efficient material with a relatively low melting point, (less than half that of steel) excellent casting properties and an extremely high recycled content. Aluminium can be melted and cast indefinitely with no loss of quality or value which makes it the perfect material for a circular economy, any waste created can be melted and reformed into new parts.
Spring is crafted from timber from a sustainable source, aluminium from part of a closed loop cycle with a powder coat finish which is entirely free from volatile organic compounds making Spring ideal for environments where indoor air quality is a priority.
“The idea behind Spring was simple; to declare – make a ‘feature’ – raise the importance visually of the legs and their fixing. It’s got a relationship with the likelihood that this product can be, assembled by the user, and so a small example of their part in its ‘creation’.” Sir Kenneth Grange.
