Form & Refine Austere Trestle Desk
The Linear tabletop with Austere trestles from Form & Refine is excellent for a home office as it is so easy to dismantle, store or move as the tabletop only rests on the trestles, so no fixation required. The trestles fold flat, too, so it takes minimal space. And with its sleekness yet robustness, it doubles up as a dining table too - so perfect for a smaller house or flat.
When Kristian Vedel was appointed professor at the Department of Industrial Design at the University of Nairobi, he found the classrooms lacked functional furniture. His trestles were the solution. Their folding capacity makes them easy to store when not in use. Straight and clear lines emphasize the overall design. An extraordinary architect has carried out the design with a strong sense of ergonomic and functional requirements. Characterized by the creative use of materials, the remarkable corner bridle joints and distinctive polished metal fittings play an important part in marking the trestles' quality and emphasizing their subtle virtue.
"The starting point for an industrial artist’s work must always be that he or she, from their own point of view and as objectively as possible, takes a position about what they feel society and their fellow people need. They must personally take a stand on the existing possibilities and responsibilities".
