Some pieces of furniture can’t be simplified. Still, even the most simple of Casimir’s chairs and tables discern themselves from others because Casimir makes them of solid materials, applies authentic techniques and constructs them in a genuine way.
The concept for Tafel n°2 was simply to make a table using only the indispensable basis and constructing elements. The result is just as simple: a rectangular table top resting on four legs. A beam on each table end, between legs and table top, strengthens the construction and keep the table top flat and stable.
The form is conceived according to genuine manufacturing methods and its proportions are harmonious. The wood, its figure and its alignment emphasise the table’s three directions: the table top, with the wood grain running lengthwise, forms a bridge over the legs; the beams stress the horizontal, supporting direction and the legs focus on the vertical, perpendicular direction. The table is made of solid wood, wooden joints and glue only.
Its concept, its form, its construction and its material all add to the table’s solidness. The underlined simplicity and the genuine construction make this seemingly ordinary table extraordinary.
