Two Royal Designers for Industry, one from the world of furniture design and one from the world of Formula One racing car design, have combined their individual skills in the design of this super slim composite table. By using state-of-the-art autosport and aerospace technology and exploiting the inherent rigidity of layered carbon fibre, Terence Woodgate and John Barnard have created an astonishing table. The idea was to take the form of a regular table and stretch it as far as possible. Radius corners, round legs, domed feet and rounded edges accentuates the slimness and seamlessness of the design. The Surface Table is a true engineering accomplishment that spans three metres and has a thickness of just 2mm at the edge: five times thinner than its nearest equivalent. Surface Table is available in two lengths with either a natural lacquered unidirectional carbon fibre or an applied walnut veneer.
