Keel Table
with Henry Wilson

The Keel table was designed after a conversation between designers David Caon and Henry Wilson. The key element behind this experimental design are the flat-packed blade legs. The legs, which bellow and expand from their flat mode, become wide, stable and self supporting. This configuration is preserved by inserting boards which are integrated with sections of the table-top, much like the keels in smaller seacraft which race on Sydney’s harbours.

Beyond the obvious benefit to transportation, the additional by-product of this design was that the legs are hollow. This allows cables to pass upwards through the leg for lighting to supply power to the user’s devices.

The Keel table is made from marine grade Birch ply.
