Down Under: An Elegant Table from Scandinavia

Christine Chang Hanway December 14, 2012

Swedish designers Mattias Ståhlbom and Gabriella Gustafson of Stockholm-based design and architecture studio TAF have long been fascinated by the underside of furniture; with their Upside-Down table, they transform their obsession into an elegant silhouette.

Above: The Upside-Down Table takes the underside framework of a table and exposes it by turning it upside down. See Danish furniture company HAY for more information.

Above: The underside frame becomes the base of the table.

Above: TAF's initial sketch for the Upside Down Table.

Above: The underside frame is just under the seat, which is a more typical detail in furniture construction.

Above: The Upside Down table is made of natural ash and can be used as a stool as well.
