YEH Wall Table
Powder Coated Steel
Take a stand.
Kenyon Yeh found the inspiration to this mobile side-table after observing a cheerleading practise at a neighbouring school in his hometown.
Kenyon Yeh: “I was walking to my studio and passed a school where two students were practising balance and strength for their cheerleading routines. The guy was with his back resting against the wall, in a sitting position without a chair, while the girl was standing on his thighs with her arms stretched out”.
The scene inspired Kenyon to design a minimalistic table with clean lines standing on only two legs. To compensate the two missing legs, a part of the thin tabletop is bent upwards in a 90-degree angle against the wall. Two thin and slightly angled tubular steel legs give additional stability. No other fixtures are needed for the table to support what’s placed on top of it.
The Yeh Wall Table is the perfect place to rest books, magazines, flowerpots, table lamps, small objects, or even your afternoon coffee. Use it in the hallway, as your new bed table, besides the sofa, or as a clever graphical element in your living room.

Who influences you and inspires your work?
Luca Nichetto. I think he’s a talented designer who’s always passionate about design. His works always surprise me, from his design approach to the materials he works with as well as the style – from Italian to Scandinavian design.

YEH Wall Table is a wall leaning side table. The inspiration came from a cheerleader practice I passed by one day on my way to work. Two students were rehearsing strength and balance. The male student was in sitting position up against a wall (but without a chair) and the female student was standing on his thighs to practice her balance and strength.
YEH Wall Table is pretty straightforward from the observation I did, as the table is mimicking the position of the male student; back resting on the wall and two legs angled away from the wall for stability. The structure is simple, the design minimalistic. You can put YEH Wall Table anywhere as a side table to rest books, magazines, flowerpots, lamps or small objects.
What do you think is the most important thing to consider as a designer?
