All About Wood - Extendable Table

All About Wood - Extendable Table

Warmth can be hygged everywhere! Lifting postcards and artworks on a whole white wall; setting up a patinated wooden table with lighting candles. Adding a little bit of olive green, dark green, brown and wooden items to the safe space can be nice and charming too. Get an extra table top right there for an amazing conversation with your friends and family!

白色的牆壁貼上各地的明信片掛起相框,櫃上放個煙燻茶色花瓶,點上蠟燭置於刻畫歲月痕跡的木桌,處處散發著舒適的安全感。溫馨幽靜的空間,偶爾增添一點橄欖綠色、墨綠色、褐色、木製單品,也很耐看。某些日子家人朋友到來,自然需要好好妝點檯面空間,享受相處的時光。

Extended table leaves usually are expected to be housed inside the table structure in small living places, especially in Hong Kong. As we do not really have extra area to set them aside for the whole year. Getting completely different materials together to form a sense of coherence, PUNT from Spain - Transalpina, Bass and WOUD from Denmark - Piezas represent the perfect balance between lacquered wood and metals.

西班牙的PUNT - Transalpina, Bass 及丹麥的WOUD - Piezas,以木面與金屬的混搭,配合整體的協調感,完美平衡兩種截然不同的材料,打造出收納形式與一般北歐延伸檯不同的,更適合細小家居的摺疊/可延伸餐桌。

 Punt Bass

Bass

Bass is highly versatile from minimalist to decorative environment in its modern and minimalist touch. From whiten oak to dark stained walnut, every shade and warmth of wood appears to be absolutely clean and tidy. Supplements including extended leaf and junctions are all housed inside the structure with the legs remaining at the end. 

Extension: 1. Pull out the table legs 2. Take the extended leaf out from the bottom of the table 3. Put it on the supporting legs horizontally 4. Push back table legs to lock up
//
由淺白的橡木到深染的胡桃木,淺原木色到深灰黑色將木材的暖意融合在簡潔的設計上。額外的延伸葉面及細膩的接合位隱藏在檯底,比起圓角的的Transalpina更顯俐落;易於搭配於各種風格,不論簡約大方的現代空間,還是充滿鮮明色彩的空間,大方得體。

延伸部分: 拉開檯腳,將延伸檯面由檯底拿出,橫放上檯底支撐,再推埋檯腳鎖上。

 Carl Hansen and Son CH002 CH006

CH002, CH006

Designed in 1982, CH002 was crafted to fit smaller spaces and CH006 for spacious spaces. Having 2 hinged leaves at both ends, they can be easily lifted up when guests visit. Full solid oak appears with Wegner’s philosophy of being functional in modern solutions.

Patch HW1, HW2

Inspired by another Scandinavian concept “umage” - making a little effort & difference from time to time, Patch optimizes practicality with the butterfly extension to hide the extended leaves inside and extend effortlessly. Minimal drop-shaped legs and small metal locks appear in the quiet elegance and firmly hold the construction together in strength and stability
//
”umage”意指 “make a bit more effort”來解決生活上的不便,偶爾作少許整理/改動空間擺設亦是一種北歐習常。Patch開合餐桌受到”umage“的啟發,將延伸部分蝴蝶型的打開並收納在餐桌內,以向內呈水滴型的實木檯腳及金屬接駁,強調Hee Welling謐靜優雅的設計特色。

I. Solid Wood
1. Daily Care: dust oiled furniture with a soft dry cloth
2. Cleaning: using a soft cloth wrung in lukewarm water following the wood grain and dried immediately with a soft cloth following the wood grains. For more severe cleaning a soap specifically developed for oiled wood can be used.
3. Re-oiling: when the wood starts to appear dry or faded (once a year).
4. Avoid use of cleaning detergents and abrasive cleaning agents as they may damage the surface of the oiled wood. Avoid placing wooden furniture in direct sunlight, excessive heat or humidity.

II. Fenix NTM Nano laminate
- unique features such as scratch resistance, soft touch, low light reflectivity, anti-fingerprint and much more. More details refer to: www.fenixntm.com/en 

III. Brass
1. Daily Cleaning of coated ones: only to use a soft dry cloth. For removal of stains, a soft cloth wrung in lukewarm water can be carefully applied. Always dry immediately after cleaning with a soft dry cloth
2. Daily cleaning of uncoated ones: only to use a soft dry cloth. In case a patina of the material is not desired, the material can be regularly cleaned and polished using a detergent specifically for brass.
