Concrete Table by Nina Mair

Name: Concrete Table

Designer: Nina Mair

Location: Innsbruck, Austria

Year: 2014

Concrete Table is a minimalist design created by Austria-based designer Nina Mair. Deeply rooted in architecture – based on experience gained from reinforced concrete structures – this unusual table is a reflection of the engagement with self-supporting structures. Concrete Table has the stability of a building, but at the same time it is almost feminine and delicate. With a thickness of only 3 cm, the steel reinforced table spans 220 cm.

Concrete Table provides ample space, either for a dinner party seating eight people, as a dinner table for the whole family, or to be put on display as a very striking office table. This piece gives an almost monolithic impression thanks to the use of such a radical and unusual material. A joint in the concrete accentuates the elegant curve of the transition between the table top and the legs. The feel of the smooth polished and waxed surface is a haptic highlight.
