2 trestles + 1 tabletop = tableKnot Trestle by MENU, the table as simple as it looks

2 trestles + 1 tabletop = table

28/11/2014 - Knot Trestle is MENU's first table ever, designed by talented Danish designer Cecilie Manz. The concept is simple: 2 trestles + tabletop = table. But as you’ll soon notice, the construction and choice of materials makes this so much more than just a table.  The Knot Trestle is a new version of the archetypical trestle. The functionality is honest and simple as we know it: 2 trestles + 1 table top = table, but the construction varies from many classic trestles. The two wooden frames are held together by full-grain leather and nothing else; The straps are simply tied together in lovely big knots.  The use of full-grain leather and the grained ash wood...

A former barn of the seventeenth century + a simple contemporary volume

28/11/2014 - In the Hertog Jan project, the structure of a former barn of the seventeenth century has found a new scope as cultural bridge between the country and the fine dining.

ICE LOFT, façade project in Hamburg with HI-MACS® by Köhler Architekten

28/11/2014 - A certain amount of skill and a high level of sensitivity in design and planning are required when attempting to integrate a new building into a historical ensemble. On the one hand, there is a risk that the building with its modern dimensions could seem out of sync with its surroundings; on the other hand, its features could be too antiquated, making it look pretentious. A problem the Hamburg-based Architects Köhler Architekten solved skilfully when designing the so-called 'Ice loft' in the district of Ottensen: The classical façade structures of workmen's and bourgeois houses in the district were reinterpreted and their surface was covered with the...
