Planck Coffee Table by Kristof De Bock

Home > Winners > #93711


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Planck

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Coffee Table

INSPIRATION:
Above all, furniture should be functional. The challenge was to create a coffee table that was different then others, esthetic and functional. With these goals in mind, the designer explored different materials.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Dasein products was looking to come up with an unique coffee table. Different in form and materials. They choose plywood but used it in an unconventional way by bonding it together on the flat sides. This gave the possibility to make a robust and elegant looking object at the same time. Seen from the sides one sets eyes on a block of wood, seen from the fronts, one looks at an elegant, 2-level object. Due to the strength of the material, the thickness of the levels can be reduced to a thin line.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The table is fairly small and movable. The idea is to eliminate the big center piece table, but place (more than one) in the living room that can be moved to where it is needed.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The basic idea came early summer of 2019. It took some time to get the details straight in the workshop in Ronse (Belgium) but in the beginning of September the coffee table was presented to the world.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The table is made of several pieces of polish pine plywood that are prepared with a CNC cutter. Once they are connected with glue and kept under high pressure for at least 12 hours, they require intense sandpapering and varnishing. At the bottom, holes are drilled for the bullet wheels that need to be glued in.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Width 75 cm x Depth 46 cm x Height 30 cm

TAGS:
Objectdesign, coffeetable, furniture, living room

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The object is designed with the golden ratio in mind. Seen both from top as from short sides, these proportions are respected for the wooden part. The 2 horizontal layers where intended to be thin but strong. They are narrowed down to 17mm and still a full grown man can stand on the middle of the table. A lot of time was spend on finding the bullet wheels. Metal wheels are strongest, but make a lot of noise on a stone floor. So the designer came up with small nylon wheels, but lots of them. In total 16 are placed under each table.

CHALLENGE:
The biggest challenge for this project was to come up with a unique concept that has an esthetic added value but is still functional. Dasein Products has chosen to make a rather small coffee table that is very easy movable. It can be used to store plaids, books, etc. so it looks neat at the sam time.
