Anodised table by Max Lamb for Deadgood

London Design Festival 09: London designer Max Lamb has designed an anodised aluminium table for British design brand Deadgood.

Three sheets of water jet-cut aluminium are dipped by hand, then slotted together and held in place by countersunk bolts.

Due to be launched at 100% Design in London next week, the tables will be produced in two sizes and four colours.

They will be sold flat-packed for home assembly.

Here's some more information from Deadgood:


The Anodised Table’s utilise a simple water-jet cutting process to create three sheets of aluminium plate that simply slot together and are assembled with four countersunk socket bolts. Max has aimed to exploit the aluminium for its inherent visual and functional characteristics which has resulted in a simple product whose value lies in the honesty of the finishing process.

Each component is individually dipped by hand, resulting in a unique range of tables that celebrate the natural inherent inconsistencies of variegated anodising. The nature of this process means that each product is slightly different, with varying streaks, marks, or patches of tonal difference incorporated in a blend of colour that runs across the surfaces of the product. This in turn acts as both a visual reference and a valuable insight into the finishing process. The products will be available in two sizes and four refined colours and are supplied disassembled for home construction.
