We have seen multiple designs by Nils Holger Moormann in the past including the DER VORSTAND cabinet, which lured a lot of design lovers on social media, including me. The sleek design and the striking silhouette of the cabinet piqued my interest to write a piece on it. The design company also gained a lot of traction for Kammerspiel, a space-saving living unit suitable for people living in micro apartments. Now, the German company has introduced an odd bod table that requires no screws at all.
Dubbed Kurt, the table comprises a tabletop, a bar, and steel legs keeping it sturdy. However, the highlight of the table is that not a single screw played part in the construction, whatsoever. It is very rare to not find any screws on a table, which is the case of this radical, functional, and simple furniture. Reason being, the clever design of the steel legs keeps the table upright without depending on nuts and bolts.
Let me explain it in detail. The steel legs pierce the table top twice to accommodate a wooden bar underneath. They act as a strap to secure the bar in place and then go to the ground to hold the entire structure and formulate a four-legged table. The nitrided steel holds the structure steady and does not let it wobble, while the wooden bar offers storage space for your accessories.
The tabletop is finished in MDF or FU (birch plywood), while the bar is made of untreated Douglas fir (solid) or untreated Ash (hollow). Ideally placed against a wall, the table can gracefully stand alone in the middle of the room. It measures around 43 inches in length, 25 inches in breadth and 34 inches in height (bar included).
