Kalahari Low Tables, Claesson Koivisto Rune 2012

The Kalahari low tables are especially suited for living areas in the home or reception areas in corporate or hospitality environments. Each table is comprised of a top and legs with no other components. A softer, lighter and elegant treatment to this otherwise very brutal and basic of tables has been very successfully achieved by the designer, Claesson Koivisto Rune. This has been done primarily through skilful proportioning and careful application of curves to the overall design.

Despite their light appearance, the Kalahari tables remain true to their sturdy roots as they are constructed from solid wood, thick top, and thick solid wood legs. An additional interesting feature is the end wood grain shape of the leg that is visible on the top.

The Kalahari tables ship flat as the legs are removable. The use of a robust bolt mechanism allows for tool-free assembly while adding to overall rigidity. The tables are expertly handmade from sustainable hardwoods by the craftsmen and women of Mabeo in Botswana.
