Nothing but What You Need

If you were given two minutes to design a table that was functional and aesthetically pleasing, could you do it? Two friends are the owners of a small Czech design boutique called Master&Master and so far there is only one product for sale, the Stackable table trestles.

After a few seconds of just looking at the table, I realized that this piece is just extremely naked – there are two steel legs and a flat wooden surface. However, what makes this table interesting and beautiful is the way the legs are designed. If you’ve taken any physics or engineering courses then you’ll understand the mechanics of trusses (don’t worry, I won’t dive into explaining equations, forces, stress, etc.). Basically, these designers have utilized this common feature mostly found in architecture and engineering into this ‘simple’ table. As a result, they’ve optimized the table’s strength. Oh, and a perk to these tables are that they’re stackable!

This design is also reminiscent of three of our Unbranded pieces – Akshat Ragava’s WM Coffee Table, Tracy Tyler’s Bent Plywood Table, and Alain Santos Monteiro’s Revi Table. Check them out!
