Based on a Japanese puzzle, the legs of this table by German design studio DING3000 knot together to create support for the blue glass tabletop.
As the legs interlock in the centre, the table can be assembled and dismantled without tools.
The project accompanies the Join cutlery set, which has the same assembly method (see our earlier story).
These details are from the designer:
The inspiration for the table-top support of JOIN TABLE was an ancient Japanese game.
Three legs can be fitted into each other without any tools by means of the simple but enigmatic principle of the devils knot and merge to one mysterious object.
JOIN table is the big brother to our cutlery JOIN, which is based on the same principle.
Materials: Oak (untreated), colour stained/smoked glass
Size: WxHxD 750 x 400 x 750 mm
