Legald’s appreciation for architecture is evident throughout the Normann Copenhagen Scala Dining Table design. The use of the classic column form for the table’s base emphasises the structural quality of the piece, with an artful use of negative space enhancing the overall effect. The circular marble top adds an extra level of luxury, bringing a prestigious quality to your interiors without being overbearing or oppressive. The table’s size allows you and your guests to dine in comfort, enjoying your meal in authentic luxury.
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.”
