The elegant Egyptian Table easily collapses for storage with the release of a small brass sliding latch beneath the tabletop – a flexible design that exemplifies the functionalism inherent in classic furniture types. For Lassen and his contemporaries, function was paramount. Their approach – strongly influenced by Kaare Klint – often began with the careful study and refinement of long-existing archetypes such as safari-style knockdown chairs, British Windsor and Chippendale chairs, and flexible, practical tables like the Egyptian Table.
These clear, proven furniture types appealed to mid-century design and architecture visionaries, upholding their core belief that intelligent, purposeful design never goes out of style.
The base is crafted from solid wood and features a veneered table top.
