The Larch Table by Tobias Tostesen Employs Sailboat-Style Fastening

Where you would expect to see the various components of a kitchen table held together by nails and screws, the Larch Table by Tobias Tostesen demonstrates a different method. Hardware can be found, fixing plastic cleats to base of the eating surface, yet the four legs and the frame are actually connected to the tabletop by means of wrapped rope.

The shipping of the piece is hence simply done in two separate parts. No hammers or screwdrivers are required to assemble the lovely wooden furnishing. Eight slots in the surface invite you to wind the polyester rope down through and around the stand beneath, pulling it tightly and securing the ends in clam cleats. The Larch Table by Tobias Tostesen makes for a crisp contemporary and playfully nautical piece.
