Simon Legald has imbued the Normann Copenhagen Grow Coffee Table - Square with an incredible lightness of form, beautifully balanced with references to the classic Danish shaker style. The table’s name refers to the seamless transition between the legs and the tabletop, giving the piece a distinctly organic feel with the impression of living wood. The simple, shapely silhouette alludes to the luxuriousness inherent to classic Scandinavian minimalism, lending the piece a timeless quality that will make the Grow table an enduring part of your home for years to come. Part of the Grow collection.
Simon Legald studies design at the The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, and will graduate in the Summer of 2012. His work consists of both small- and large scale products.
“Honesty is what makes a product understandable, and is what describes functionality of the products. If you understand the product, it doesn’t 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 designs 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.”
