Staffan Holm, 2011


Atlas, Dining table
Staffan Holm, 2011
Solid ash wood, laminated ash veneer, stained hard wax oil
The image of Atlas carrying the weight of the world on his shoulders comes to mind when you see the legs of this dining table. By combining three pieces of laminated wood into a leg pair, the legs obtain unparallel strength and lightness that creates a strong character to this table.
D ´Albe, Stool
Staffan Holm, 2011
Solid ash wood, laminated ash veneer, stained hard wax oil
Often there is much inspiration to be found in objects that were created for practical use, but became beautiful or interesting by coincidence. This stool is inspired by so called ”Duc d’Albe’s”; old anchoring tripods hammered into the bottom of the harbor and these days mostly popular social spots for the seagull community.
