Homann’s genius lay in his expert understanding of both form and function and his ability to strip a piece of furniture back to its barest essentials while still retaining a core of stylish functionality. Honed to perfection, the AH outdoor collection epitomises his core values of simplicity, clarity, and logic. The AH911 side table is both practical and versatile, available with a removable cushion that can be used to transform the table into an impromptu seat for extra guests.
The artisans at Carl Hansen & Son have lavished the side table with their meticulous attention to detail, tirelessly labouring to make every joint and angle perfect. This quest for perfection honours Homann’s intent to produce a range that is both eye-catching and functional. The natural resilience of the teak allows the AH collection to resist the elements and become an enduring part of your outdoor spaces for years to come.
