“Modern aesthetics combined with functionality for everyday life” would be a way to describe this table with a few words.
Launched in 2014 the KT11 design presents a delicate steel tube construction that is carefully hand crafted from high grade stainless steel or (painted in different colours) of crude steel. This support structure allows maximum leg room for chair seating as well as corner bench arrangements. The table tops are available in various sizes with various edges and different types of wood (oak, walnut and ash). The simple idea of a truss, and its expression through elegant design is the distinguishing feature of this jewel for your home or office. Floating on top of a reduced and delicate steel truss is an elegant, but simple, wood slab - reminiscent of an acacia tree canopy found in the African Serengeti; Art and nature, in harmony


Christian Kroepfl:
Born in Western Austria I currently practice as an Architect and Designer in Vienna and Lustenau, where I develop and design high-quality design furniture.
In my design work the questions about functionality and quality as well as the use of natural and sustainable materials are in the centre of the development process. It’s all about the clarity of design and the deliberate restraint to the essential which averts superficial attention: modest, sophisticated and sometimes calm in nature, these pieces of furniture make a point that great design does not tolerate hierarchies or compromise in the interaction of form and function. Sometimes just the simple idea of a truss, and its expression through elegant design is the distinguishing feature of one of these jewels for your home or office.
Modern design, in particular combinations of steel and solid wood, resolves into timeless and aesthetic furniture that beautifies our everyday life.
