31/07/2020 - This September, String Furniture will be launching the new table Museum Sidetable in collaboration with design duo TAF Studio. The table, which developed from the wall shelf Museum NM&.045, is a height-adjustable pedestal table that elegantly showcases any item. Ahead of the reopening of the fully renovated Nationalmuseum in Stockholm in 2019, TAF Studio was tasked with creating part of the interior design. The wall shelf Museum NM&.045 was designed for String Furniture in connection with this. The beautifully sleek yet eye-catching shelf now holds sculptures, busts and other small objects from the museum's collections. However, it works just as well in any modern home.
With the Museum family now being expanded to include the height-adjustable Museum Sidetable, the possibilities are even greater. The table can be used as a pedestal, living room side table, bedside table, computer desks and much, much more. With Museum Sidetable you can keep your favourite items within easy reach at all times.
"Museum Sidetable developed from the Museum NM&.045 wall shelf, which now has a stand-alone sibling. The new table is height-adjustable, making it flexible, multifunctional and easy to position. Like the wall shelf, Museum Sidetable is based on the idea that the table's primary task is to showcase and highlight that which is placed on it, rather than take centre stage itself," says Pär Josefsson, founder and part-owner of String Furniture.
The idea of Museum Sidetable was born earlier in 2020, when TAF Studio launched the sofa Famna as part of an exhibition at Svenskt Tenn, for which a suitable table was needed to display Josef Frank's artistic vases. As the table legs, which have been inspired by industrial steel beams, are not centered, the base of the table can be slid under a bed or sofa, so that the square table top is always within easy reach.
Museum Sidetable is available for delivery as of September 2020.
