Expertly blending natural and man-made materials, the Normann Copenhagen Vig Outdoor Dining Table combines a double powder-coated steel frame with a hard-wearing Robinia wood tabletop. The combination of durable materials makes the table an enduring part of your outdoor spaces, able to withstand the elements and last for years, whatever the weather.
The table bears all the hallmarks of Simon Legald’s design philosophy, with a stripped-back, honest silhouette and an exceptional degree of functionality. Part of the Normann Copenhagen Vig 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.”
