An Honoree of Interior Design Magazine’s Best of 2011 Awards, Slot is a refined interpretation of the sawhorse table. By taking advantage of the strength of steel legs and a thick solid wood slab, the bulk of the table’s structure is concealed and only the elegant lines of the top and legs remain. Two openings in the tabletop highlight the seamless joining of the wood and metal and bring the beauty of the wood’s end grain to the center of the table.
At the same time, the slots allow for tidy laptop cord control. By incorporating the practical elements of a desk into a classic dining table, Slot addresses the reality that in homes, restaurants, and hotels, working and dining often happen on the same surface. Photos by Lauren Coleman Photography.
