Artistically placed in space Doug. Rails omitted as I was in the middle of a cheese sandwich.

Feel a severe thirst building up for tonight.

I don't know who designed it, but I hope no-one ever leans on one of the corners or the whole lot is going over :shock:

I know the Rietveld one thanks Paul but this was Danish often with chromed steel underframe and legs.
I'll keep searching.

I was thinking Sycamore top and ABW legs and frame. The legs are a lot lighter than in my sketch (and maybe a bit nearer the corners Ed) :lol:

That's nice, Rietveldish again.

Thinking about it my original may have been glass and chrome only. Still can't find it though.

I'll work on my SU and make my own

Thanks for looking
Cheers

It works fine in metal, a wood version would be very delicate :o

Reitveld packing case table comes close:

It is ruthlessly logical - given the problem of how to make a viable table from scrap boards all the same section.

Odd how I seem to have strayed unwittingly into Rietveld land. I agree with your comment - if that is what you want.

I'm going to draw up my idea properly (so as not to fall yet again into the design as you go trap) and get some ABW in stock to go with the sycamore already here.

I was thinking last night I may use square stainless tube for the frame, which also happens to be in stock. ABW top caps on the legs and sycamore top finished in something non-yellowing (ish). Sounds good to me.
Cheers

I just knew you'd know. Thanks that is it. HTF could you find it and me not? especially as I knew what i was looking for and you didn't.

You're a gem, thanks

Now all I have to do is work it out in wood.

EDIT Now I see the legs are in the same plane as the frame (and not as I'd drawn it) then it's straightforward. :D
Cheers

I didn't know - thank the power of search engines - danish stainless asymmetric legs coffee table or somesuch - took a few variants and a fun 10 minutes seeing lots of nice danish stuff...

Having now seen seen it, I think it looks best in glass and steel, but is pretty good in steel base with wood top.

Wood base and glass top might be good, but it would have to be something really stark - blackened oak or something, I think.

I agree (I tried the asymmetric danish tack without success) but I think it may not fit in with the existing furniture. I was thinking of just using the basic idea of the leg frame with contrasting timbers e.g sycamore top, dark legs. I'll draw it out.

wow.. Nice information and ideas. I really like the coffee table. coffee table is a very important piece of furniture. Living room and family room coffee tables are used differently, and family room coffee tables get more rough use. Keep that in mind when selecting a coffee table.

You need to use a decent wood grain material if you're going to use one. Or at least scale the one you used to the correct size. ;)
