La Table – wherever you want it

Simple yet multifunctional

When approaching the Finnish designers Jouni Leino and Teppo Vahteristo with questions about La Table, the witty answer is: La Table is a table, is a stool, is a bench, is a chair, is a desk, is a bar stool.

In other words, La Table is a stackable, colourful range of furniture for indoor and outdoor use. The legs are fastened to the corners of the top with screws and form a slightly adjustable structure for steadiness on uneven surfaces.

Jouni Leino shares the considerations regarding the design of the product: “The basic idea behind LaTable was to make extremely simple pieces of furniture, that would fit both in and out, from bed side table to kitchen, to balconies and terraces. I dream of seeing La Table also outside cafes in European cities. Being so simple, I always thought that bright colours go nicely with the concept. Colours bring joy and a certain happiness to the product.”

Apart from being presented at Fuorisalone in Milan, La Table was also featured in the book of design ideas, “Design For 2016”, showing 246 designs from 123 designers. The book was published in its fifth edition by the Italian company, Promotedesign, during Milan Design Week earlier this year.

The producer is the Finnish company Vivero, and manufacturing of the stool and two tables has just started. Besides, a bench will follow soon, and a chair is being processed.

Vivero will launch LaTable officially in September during the Helsinki Design Week.
