The table is ubiquitous in our modern lives: in the form of the kitchen table where family gathers, or the boardroom table where colleagues gather. However, most long, beautiful, statement tables in these spaces are generally custom made. This presented a void in the market for knock-down, premium longer-length tables. I was motivated to explore this void further, and design (with multiple finish and size options) a highly-adaptable table to suit many environments, using premium, unique, high-quality materials.
The Multi project was to address the following:
Utilising a knock-down frame constructed from aluminium results in a light, strong table which can be assembled and disassembled quickly, transported easily and cheaply, has a minimal carbon footprint, and can be used in any outdoor climates.
The solid-surface top gives a visual sense of quality to the piece. The attributes of solid surface separate it from most other materials; it is one of the few contemporary materials that is fully renewable, repairable, seamless and non-porous, and therefore suitable for almost any environment. The variety of material and surface finishes available for Multi’s table top allows for use in a variety of environments: indoor, outdoor, commercial settings, educational institutions, or residential settings.
Multi’s end frames and central rail system are separate pieces, and each piece can be powder coated in different colours, or kept uniform.
I’m excited to offer the innovation and export potential which this agile and flexible product can most certainly deliver.
