Leveillä is a table derived from the bent plywood techniques of the 1930’s and 1940’s craftsmen. With this table the aim was to explore how the designers were able to craft objects of a timeless and beautiful nature.
Leveillä was hand made in a cold press lamination. Using CNC technology to create the mold allowed for an accuracy that translates throughout the whole table. The glass sheet to slips into place yet is held firm enough to not require fittings. This has allowed the design to be kept clean and simple in its overall form.
The two drawers were added to give a functional element in different environments. From dining tables and office desks to shop counters where a cash draw could be introduced, Leveillä is a multi purpose object that can adapt to users needs. The red accent is a way of adding a playful and surprising element to the design also tying it to other designs in this series (Alpha)
The name Leveillä comes from the Finnish language translating in English to “show off”. Leveillä was designed so that the owner could display his/her own objects and artefacts underneath the glass top.
