Trestle Table by Nicola Enrico Stäubli

February 18, 2009

Swiss designer Nicola Enrico Stäubli has created the Trestle Table.

From the designer:

Metal frames are put over the edges of a tabletop and contracted with lashing straps creating a highly solid linkage. Other than conventional trestles it causes a table with an unitary look. It is designed to work with any table format and for tabletops dimensioned at 24 to 30mm thickness.

About the designer:

Nicola Enrico Stäubli explores a new form of customization: Since the knowledge of the consumer needs will always be limited, he designs with a focus on the greatest possible flexibility. In today’s world of the open source concept, consumers take on the role of co-designers. Nicola’s designs have an openness allowing the hybrid customer the most versatile usage. Beyond a reference to the 2.0 economy, a similar product typology pairs with the requirements of a sustainable design – it’s adaptable to a changing living environment thus providing long lifespan.

The designer about his work: “My projects represent an approach to design which has more to do with mathematics than with a personal and inward looking composition. I am always in search of the primary source of design – the initial point. It is by far the most important step because each and every decision in the design process is based on it. You end up with a physical manifestation of this idea which is to be judged not after the concept of beauty but as the logical result after a series of consistent decisions in the designing process.”

Nicola Enrico Stäubli graduated from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zürich (2004) with a degree in Architecture. He is living and working as an independent designer, architect and bike messenger in Bern.
