This modern and designer white Block Side Trolley and Tray Table from the iconic Danish and Scandinavian brand Normann Copenhagen was designed in 2012 by Simon Legald.
Inspired by the classic trolley table, Legald has updated and made his own with simple, yet impactful means. The Block’s rounded shape, contrasting materials and the combination of craft and industry leaves the designer’s signature on the design and gives the table its unique expression.
The Block side table has no specific direction and can be used from all four sides.
It is a versatile piece of furniture with many different functions in the home. Block can be used as a serving trolley or side table, in the kitchen, as a bedside table, for a home bar or in the children’s room.
About the Designer:
Simon Legald graduated from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in the summer of 2012. His work consists of both small- and large scale products. Simon’s designs are often created in a dialogue between craftsmanship and industry. He also likes to incorporate the techniques that are necessary for the structure of a product into the design by highlighting them visually.
“Honesty is what makes a product understandable and is what describes the products functionality. If you understand the product, it does not need any explanation. The essence of my design is for it to be bought and used. Therefore, it has to satisfy not only the functional aspects, but also the psychological and aesthetic needs. For me simplicity describes the true identity of objects and makes them trustworthy. In my design, I try not to add any unnecessary details. I work with simplicity by highlighting the necessities instead of hiding them. It gives the product a simple and honest expression.”
