German designer Theresa Arns set out to design a simple side table with build in storage space for magazines, remotes, extra chargers, gum and chocolate or what ever you need at hand in the living room.
The design is elegant, distinct and very welcoming. You’re drawn to see and feel how it works when you’re near it.
Theresa Arns explains, “I was looking for an unpretentious but elegant way to open the storage container under the top plate and got the idea to open the lid by rotating it around one of the legs. The metal sticks helps stabilize the con- struction and complements the expression of the wooden table.”
Due to its size and storage function Turning Table works great at home – by the couch in the living room or as a bedside table for books, magazines or tissues. It will also suit lobbies, relaxed meeting rooms, waiting areas, cafes or restaurants.
On her design philosophy Theresa Arns says, “I think I am designing quite functional, but I also think it’s very important, that all the objects we surround ourselves with, have a warm and poetic part. I love working with di erent materials and spend a lot of time on how to combine these. I always try to design simple objects with a story to tell.”
