Stuttgart State Academy of Art and Design graduate Beatus Kopp has designed a table with hollow legs through which electrical wires can be channeled.
Called aTable, the product is made of glass-reinforced plastic and has four holes on the table surface, leading wires down through the legs and out the bottom.
Kopp presented his table at Blickfang in Stuttgart last month.
Here's a bit of text from the designer:
The inspiration for this table was based on the most basic requirements the user has of any ordinary table. Following this idea the design is reduced to its most basic element; a plane, flat work surface, where the legs are simply an continuous extension of this surface.
This minimalistic approach is also seen in the functionality and construction of this table. While the top surface has a smooth finish, the underside is raw and uneven in contrast.
aTable also accommodates contemporary electronic equipment, but is still versatile enough to accommodate individual tastes. It is minimalist in design and materiality, easy to assemble, but still highly stable.
