Last year Offecct launched the stackable chair LITE, which immediately became a commercial success. LITE was designed by Broberg & Ridderstråle, and this year the design duo has developed a table that fits perfectly with the LITE chair.
The LITE table is a development from the chair LITE and is foldable for easy storage. The table is designed for conference rooms.
A front panel can be added to the table in any desired color or in a black mesh. The front panel reinforces the integrity of the person sitting at the table and provides for more design possibilities.
– Besides the commercial success, we are very happy that LITE was awarded the prestigious Good Design Award, says Kurt Tingdal, CEO, Offecct.
– In order to meet the demand for a table complementing the chair in a space efficient manner without losing its originality, we have developed the table LITE together with Broberg & Ridderstråle, Kurt Tingdal continues.
Broberg & Ridderstråle were chosen as the Designer of the Year by the magazine Residence, and among other things LITE was highlighted as an example of excellent design.
– Tables in this category are often rather dull, and it was extremely important to us to create a more interesting and compelling table compared to other tables on the market, says Johan Ridderstråle, Partner Broberg & Ridderstråle
– In order to accomplish this we started out from the chair project, and more specifically the angles of the chair which inspired an exciting loop on the table leg making the LITE table more distinguish than other conference tables, Johan Ridderstråle concludes.
The LITE table is foldable, comes in different sizes and by placing them together a symmetry is created giving the impression of a bigger table. LITE weights under 10 kg and is easy for one person to handle.
