From Canaletto walnut to oak and cherry wood, our selection of new dining tables coming to Clippings this month celebrates the natural tactility of different kinds of timber. Of course, we’ve also included plenty of marble options for that luxury feeling while Gaber and Moooi have blessed us with some outdoor pieces made from sturdy steel. Long story short: we’ve got you covered no matter where your next project takes you.
Saen Table by Gabriele and Oscar Buratti for Alias
A study in contrasts, the Saen dining table features a thick, blobby base that tapers off into an improbably slender stem. Although the original version was made from concrete, Alias has recently revived the design with a polyurethane frame for an even more smooth, surreal finish. Saen’s circular top can be made from MDF or lacquered wood and is available in three sizes between 140 and 180 centimetres.
Säule Table by Fabio Fantolino for Wiener GTV
Gebrüder Thonet Vienna or GTV is a family-run company that was founded in 1853 by Michael Thonet, inventor of modern bentwood furniture and designer of the iconic No. 14 chair. Now, Italian architect Fabio Fantolino has reinterpreted this rich craft heritage in the form of the Säule table with its turned wood legs in Canaletto walnut and rounded tabletop informed by GTV’s traditional, sinuous design language.
Ten Table by Christian Troels and Jacob Plejdrup for dk3
In 2009, dk3 founder Jacob Plejdrup collaborated with Christian Troels to create a rectangular, wooden table commemorating the Danish design brand’s tenth anniversary. Twelve years on, the duo needed no occasion to introduce a marble version of the design, with a rounded top rendered in carrara or black marquina and perched on a cuboid base with the same distinctive milled profile as the original.
Pylon Table by Diesel Living and Moroso
Liquid porcelain slip is coloured with different pigments and swirled together to form the top of this stoneware table, resulting in an abstract pattern reminiscent of melted marble. This slab sits atop a base of black, powder-coated steel, modelled on the towering silhouette of an electricity pylon. The design represents the latest evolution of a table created by Moroso and Italian fashion brand Diesel in 2013, which featured a circular top in glass or oak.
Oak Geometric Dining Table by Alain Van Havre for Ethnicraft
Generous surfaces allow the natural grain and texture of wood to take centre stage in this design by Antwerp-based brand Ethnicraft. Simple oak slabs form both the tabletop as well as each of the two legs, which are punctuated with U-shaped cut-outs. With its smooth, perfectly carved lines, the table is somewhere between a functional piece of design and a sculpture by modernist artist Constantin Brâncuși.
Arket Plus Dining Table by Forsix Design for Gaber
Rendered in hardwearing steel, the geometric tabletop that defines Gaber’s Arket Plus range can be folded away in one simple movement thanks to an integrated flip-top joint. Together with its pared-back, three-star base, this allows the design to be stacked, stored and transported without taking up too much space. The product is 100 per cent recyclable, made in Italy and comes in a range of classic neutrals as well as vibrant yellow, red and blue.
Eden Rock Table by Sacha Lakic for Roche Bobois
Product designer Sacha Lakic drew on the opulence of Louis XVI-era France for his Eden Rock table, which features a Carrera marble top, brass detailing and a frame made of solid cherry wood. This rich material palette is complemented with a rippled border that runs along the length of the tabletop and adds an unexpected textural element to the design. Each piece is made to order by Roche Bobois with a 10 to 12 week lead time.
Plania Table by Inclass
Thanks to its reinforced, structural aluminium frame, a single Plania table from Inclass can measure more than three metres long. That’s not to mention the fact that, with the help of a sectional, the modular design can stretch to fill pretty much any space. Plus, its top and legs can be rendered in three different heights and various finishes including oak and walnut wood, allowing for almost endless customisation.
Androgyne Dining Table Rectangular by Danielle Siggerud for Menu
Norwegian architect Danielle Siggerud originally created Androgyne as a side table to be housed in the cafe of Menu’s Copenhagen showroom. Now, the design has been reinvented as a large, convivial sharing table for eight to ten people, available in natural or dark-stained oak. Three intersecting wooden planks form each of its legs, leaving an arched, almost sculptural void at their centre.
NVL Round Dining Table by MDF Italia
French architect Jean Nouvel designed the NVL Round Table for MDF Italia. Its slim tabletop comes in a matt or glossy lacquer finish an rests on two sculptural and symmetric legs, resulting in an altar-like impression. It comes in lacquered, glossy or matt finishes.
