A coffee table designed in 1946 by a Dutch architect has finally reached production and goes on sale in a shop in Chiswick, London from this week. The table, T46, comes in three finishes, birch, oak and walnut. It is made to order by manufacturer Windmill Furniture and sold through its retail outlet Isokon Plus. Designed by Hein Stolle, the table is produced with materials sourced from around the world, with each piece individually moulded, shaped and hand sanded.
The visual identity combines the club’s “illustrious heritage” and “future glory” with an eye to digital platforms and more casual fans.
The week-long festival will also host speakers including interaction design expert Daljit Singh and representatives from Heatherwick Studio.
His installation for London Design Festival draws on a number of inspirations, from clubbing in the 1990s to fake Crimean villages.
