Embrace Tables

Carl Hansen & Søn, 2019

We wanted to create a stable and ultimately light table concept using the absolute minimum of material.

Each table comprises just three components: a round tabletop that seems to float on a centered frame, as well as a

crossed wooden base that serves to anchor the table, representing gravity.


Soaring kites in the wind are the poetic image behind these objects.

You hold the wooden bar in your hands and the lines are your connection to the kite in the sky.

The lines are stretched by the force of the kite, and the kite is prevented from flying away by yourself pulling the wooden bar.
