NEW DINING TABLE FOR MUUTO

It is a true pleasure mixing things by yourself? With a choice of 4 different table tops, 4 frames and 4 types of legs there are 64 ways to create a personal and unique table. Adaptable table is made of solid oak and powder coated steel frame.

Gabriella Gustafson and Mattias Ståhlbom have run the architecture and design studio TAF in Stockholm, Sweden since 2002. TAF’s aim is to make ordinary life less ordinary through subtle but effective changes in how products and architecture appear and function. A recurrent departure point in TAF projects is that everyday objects by their very commonness can be made uncommon.

“The ordinary and standard as working material."

"We are so used to the content of our daily life that it goes largely unnoticed. However, the common and everyday are actually what define us."

"These are the objects that both influence and depict how we live. Perhaps it is the most insignificant and boring objects that are therefore the most interesting?"

"By altering ordinary objects and placing them in new contexts, TAF offers the viewer a possibility to see the objects in a new light. Within a new setting, the ordinary is made extraordinary.”  (Christina Zetterlund)

    Isn’t this what Ikea has been doing for many years?

  • Gravy

    No, unfortunately this is not what Ikea has been doing for many years.

    Agree with Jx – and when i think of adaptable, i think of the ability to change with my needs – not just in the color or material… boring idea.

  • K-to-the-fizzle

    I saw a similar table from a swedish designstudent at last years furniturefair in Stockholm, I found the table at Ung07s website…

    I saw it in Paris in september.
    it is a real cool table !

  • HC Bauer

    It’s kind of a parallel to the Steelwood chairs from the Bouroullecs, but still, it’s not a new principle, so in my opinion it’s a good design! Looking forward to seeing a pricetag and how the market receives it!
