The Pedestal table not only reorganizes and enlivens any room, but also creates new spaces by displaying all kinds of objects. Matti Klenell's handcrafted design transforms a classic into a contemporary piece of furniture with a new twist. With a variable height, add up to 5 spacers for a high version, or remove two for a low one, put your favorite objects in the spotlight: a flower, a sculpture... It's a true furnishing accessory: enhancing any space, domestic or public. Take one or several to arrange in groups.
"I created the Pedestal side table years ago for myself, as I needed somewhere to put my laptop so I could move it around easily. The table then proved to be much more versatile. You can use it to put tea cups, a vase of flowers or anything else you want." Matti Klenell
Made from solid oak, in a choice of natural, lacquered white or black finish, and built to last. The 5 geometrically shaped spacers add flexibility and make it easy to change height from 25 to 55 centimetres. Assembly is effortless, simply screwing or unscrewing, and the interconnecting bolts and nuts are an integral part of the design, with no loose parts. Stability is ensured by a heavy iron ring concealed beneath the base. This easy-to-move piece of furniture is tough as nails, but elegantly light.
Anders Färdig, founder of Design House Stockholm, discovered the Pedestal side table during a visit to Matti Klenell's studio, which was preparing the Stay Here A While retrospective at the Värmland Museum last year. Since the start of his long career in the late 90s, Matti Klenell has created an impressive number of design classics, including the redesign of the café, bar and restaurant at Sweden's National Museum.
