Escritoire Trestle by Ett la Benn

DMY Berlin 09: designers Oliver Bischoff and Danilo Durler of Berlin studio Ett la Benn presented a small trestle table at Made in Berlin last week as part of DMY Extended.

Steel connecting elements on each leg component interlock, forming a trestle support.

A wooden slab with a corresponding steel plate along one edge slots into the gap between the first two components and creates a cantilevered table top.

Alternatively, two trestles can be used to support a much larger table top.

Intended as a writing desk or side table, the piece of furniture is made of powder-coated steel and solid walnut, oak, cherry or maple.

Here’s a bit of text from Ett la Benn:

Escritoire ‘trestle’

As an escritoire, side table, storage or desk: ‘trestle’ is both multifunctional and space-saving. Composed of a dyadic underframe and a table board, its single components get interlocked by a plug-in function and can be constructed or removed with one grip. ‘trestle’ can be delivered in walnut, oak, cherry and maple wood, while the connecting parts are available in 4 combinations of high-contrast lacquers.

Material: powdered steel, three-layer slab of solid wood
Measurements wdh: 80 x 40 x 75 cm
