Danish designer Cecilie Manz has added a trestle table held together by strips of leather to Menu's 2014 collection of furniture and homeware.

The Knot Trestle was designed by Cecilie Manz with two typical trestle frameworks and a grained ash tabletop, which are fixed together using nothing but lengths of unsanded leather.

"The functionality is honest and simple as we know it: two trestles plus one table top equals table, but the construction varies from many classic trestles," said Menu.

The leather strips are fed through narrow slits in the trestles and then tied together to create prominent knots, removing the need for screws or other fixings.

"The use of full-grain leather and the grained ash wood gives the design a playful, innovative and strong look," added Menu.

The Knot Trestle is the latest edition to Menu's current collection, which also includes cloche-shaped pendant lamps by Grethe Meyer and a three-legged chair by Afteroom.
