&Tradition, Danish Design Furniture & Lighting

Contemporary British designer John Astbury's Tung side table offers an alluring blend of monolithic strength and humble modesty: a small, rounded-edged tabletop resting on three powerful pillars.

For &Tradition CEO and Founder, Martin Kornbek Hansen, it's this singular contrast that makes it a great addition to an interior. As he explains, “Tung is unusual in that his form manages to be both strong and understated. Its sculptural stature brings a classic aesthetic to any space, while the bold two tones are perfect for adding an injection of color."

Made of lacquered MDF, the Tung side table is 48 cm high, with a Ø38 cm top.

Material solid MDF, milled and high gloss lacquered
Dimensions Ø38 x H48 cm Weight 10.8 kg

John Astbury

John Astbury studied anthropology and sociology in his native England before moving to Sweden to study product design at Konstfack, the country's largest university for arts, crafts and design. Building boats ignited her love of craftsmanship and playing music ignited her passion for evoking emotions through design.

The designer pursues these passions in his eponymous design studio in Stockholm, where his process involves re-examining the fundamental elements of an archetype to explore what can be done differently and make sense of form, driving design in a new direction.
