The Trestle by Benedicte de Lescure for La Corbeille

Designer Bénédicte de Lescure has created this concertina trestle table for French brand La Corbeille.

The glass top is supported by a wooden frame that folds out in one movement to support the top on four points in addition to the central hinge.

Called The Trestle, the piece was launched at Maison & Objet in Paris last month.

The information that follows is from de Lescure:


What is more efficient to stand a tray? Two trestles or maybe... only one. Only one trestle is enough to stand a tray wich can be round or very long.

Bearing spots guarantee a increased stability. Handling is easy, one move to open, another to fold it and to put away, with an efficient space's benefit. Upper legs are used to lower part as compasses, embed hinges make the pivot.

No waste. Colored plywood underline the obvious drawing in red, or solid oak glorifies the simplicity.

    • ohno

      agreed for the legs, but its not that functional to lean a glass table top up somewhere in the corner!!

    Agreed with stephan. The table top should be square or rectangular with larger overhang to provide more leg room. But then it might topple because of the small footprint and lightweight legs.
