Ushering in Grace
03/12/2018 - Kanso coffee table, designed by Laura Bilde – 2016's Danish Design Awards upcoming designer of the year – for Please Wait to be Seated, is an elegant study in sculptural form, yet with a clear functionality. In its simple revelation, the black trays in ashwood rest safely on the black or fig puple metal frame.

Kanso is a Japanese term in Zen Buddistic practice which views simplicity as the heart of enlightened living, ushering in the calm, 'grace and beauty that emerge when clutter fades away'. Kanso coffee table by Please Wait to be Seated

Easy to fit together, adapt and transform, the Kanso coffee table is an elegant study in sculptural form and no-nonsense function.

The table is flexible and balanced by the different sizes of the trays, where the coffee cup can be placed on the upper one while the magazine can be placed on the smaller, lower one. When celebrating, the bottom tray can be placed across the top tray, serving as a platter for canapés.

The new table fits perfectly within the Danish design firm's repertoir of new designs carefully researched to reflect history and tradition with the aim of suggesting the classics of tomorrow.
