ESSAY™ – A TABLE FOR LIFE

13 July 2009


Quality, honesty and thoughtful design without frills – are the key principles upon which Fritz Hansen’s new table, Essay™ has been built. Designed by Danish designer Cecilie Manz, Essay embodies the design world’s current interest in back-to-basics simplicity and emphasis on durability in both aesthetics and materials.

What distinguishes Essay is its solid yet light design. The table consists of three elements – a tabletop and two bases – in a simple and natural construction that gives it both an elegant look and flexible functionality.

As a furniture designer, Cecilie Manz thinks creatively but always with respect for the materials and functionality. The Essay table reflects her approach with its simple lines and sparse form, which is softened by its smooth, rounded legs. The solid wood in warm shades – oak, ash, black coloured ash and walnut – also lends its character a friendly edge, creating a peaceful and homely atmosphere.

The dining table sits at the heart of any home, acting as a gathering point where family members, friends and guests meet before disappearing again into the world of their individual activities. So the table that stands in the living room, kitchen or family room carries a great deal of emotional weight, as well as the obvious need for it to be a functional table with the space and durability to support family life for many years.

Essay satisfies these demands, coming in four different sizes to match the sizes and lifestyles of a variety of households. Each table can also be expanded with black linoleum leaves, ensuring there’s enough room to simply push the laptop computer, toys, newspapers and schoolbooks to one side when it’s time to eat. Made of one hundred percent solid wood and without a frame, Essay will last a lifetime, representing the ultimate form of sustainability.

The Essay table will be available from 1st September 2009 at selected Fritz Hansen dealers. For more information contact your local Fritz Hansen showroom.
