PRIVATE DINING TABLES
BY SPACE COPENHAGEN
BRING ELEGANCE AND SYMMETRY TO THE MOST IMPORTANT ROOMS IN THE HOME.
ANTIQUE JAPANESE FURNITURE
Large in scale but lightweight in appearance, the dining tables share the same inspiration as the rest of the Private Collection: the beauty, balance and simplicity found in antique Japanese furniture. The tables embody Space Copenhagen’s modern-day response to the traditional craft techniques used in Japanese joinery, which are visually translated into signature design details.
SOCIAL RITUALS OF DINING
Considering the social rituals of dining in their design, Space Copenhagen elected to make the tables slightly narrower than is typical of dining furniture. This allows ample space for all the components of a family meal, but also brings diners closer together, enabling more intimate experiences and facilitating conversation with a greater number of people, keeping dinner a highly convivial affair.
Two sizes are available, giving options for interiors of different proportions. The sheer scale of the 320 cm variant means that, as well as hosting grand dinners for lots of people, the table can also be used for many activities simultaneously. This is an especially useful feature for large households, when a parent might want to catch up with emails on a laptop, while older children tackle their homework and their younger siblings engage in artwork or play.
COMPLEMENTS SPACES OF EVERY STYLE
The simplicity and understated elegance of its design allows the Private Dining Table to be teamed with a wide variety of chair typologies – from traditional dining chairs to more modern styles of seat – making it an unusually versatile piece of furniture.
STABLE AND STURDY TABLE. DELICACY AND REFINEMENT
The Private Dining Table is constructed from four wooden elements: two tapered legs are attached to the veneered tabletop via a solid-wood crossbeam, which is held in place by strong metal fixings. The result is a stable and sturdy table whose robustness is belied by the delicacy and refinement of its appearance.
ADDING TO THE COLLECTION
As with the other pieces in the Private Collection, the dining tables are offered in two finish options: brown-black-stained ash veneer or light-stained oak veneer. These colors, coupled with the inherent timelessness of the design, ensure that the Private Dining Table complements spaces of every style, and can be teamed with a wide array of GUBI dining chairs, as well as the other display and storage units in the wider Private Collection.
DESIGNED TO REMAIN RELEVANT
Designed to be packed flat for efficient shipping, the Private Dining Table is simple to construct and disassemble, making it easier to move from room to room, or home to home, as the need arises. It is – both practically and aesthetically – designed to remain relevant and beautiful for decades to come.
The kinship between Space Copenhagen and GUBI is defined by a shared philosophy that combines a signature of elegant simplicity with a cosmopolitan international outlook. Prioritizing functionality and personality in design while focusing on a few effective details has resulted in a self-assured design universe that emphasizes a sense of spaciousness and identity paired with a nuanced understanding of materials and craftsmanship.
