'Aluminium-Tisch 2'

Essay

An aluminium sheet of two mm thickness is formed in a way and the result is a stable and rigid table. This method makes it possible to create a light, water-resistant table on a high level of quality, craftsmanship and design. A first-class article of furniture, which can be expected to outlast modish trends and fashions.

Comments by the nominators:
The clarity of the table and the perfection of the workmanship are impressive. The forming technique that has been applied here gives the sheet aluminium an ideal degree of stability, resulting in minimum weight, minimum stacking height and maximum simplicity.
