The Cricket series is an update of the traditional English cricket-table typology, originating from Jacobean times, featuring slightly splayed legs and tops with softly rounded corners.

Designed in Hackney is a Dezeen initiative to showcase world-class architecture and design created in the borough, which is one of the five host boroughs for the London 2012 Olympic Games as well as being home to Dezeen’s offices. We’ll publish buildings, interiors and objects that have been designed in Hackney each day until the games this summer.

    Personally, I'm not keen. I think the legs look a bit dumpy and not particularly elegant. If you want solid, then have a leg that is the same girth up and down. If you want elegant, taper down. Thoughts?

      Kay and Stemmer are designers with just two ideas; their first collection was a total pastiche of 1950s furniture with tapering legs, then a new collection turning the legs upside down. Awesome.

    Great craftsmanship but not particularly exciting or inspiring.
