Mensa6 table is the latest piece by Michael Schougaard Svane, who thinks that maximum strength can be achieved with a minimal use of material and components. The number 6 refers to the thickness of the tabletop (6 mm), while Mensa is Latin for table.
Pleasingly simple, the piece is comprised of only four parts. The slim tabletop is supported by two stainless steel legs attached to the perforated frame, which ensures the stability of the construction. The legs can be moved along the holes in the frame, changing the visual balance of the piece. Even though the table is big enough to accommodate ten people, it is light and can be easily carried and assembled by one person.
The Mensa6 table is the winner of this year’s Reddot design award.
