A playful and sculptural table, where you can place your coffee and favorite books.
Keel is a simple coffee table that is organically shaped and where volume is essential. The thought of how an otherwise flat and angular table concept can be transformed into something round and soft has been played with, and there is an exciting construction under the tabletop, a place that rarely attracts attention. The name is inspired by the keel of a boat, which stretches all the way under the surface of the water from the stern to the aft. The keel keeps the ship in balance and prevents capsize. The table is also kept together by the keel, which provides a beautiful detail under the top. The table seems to be both light and heavy, depending on the angle from which it is contemplated.
The Danish furniture company Erik Jørgensen A/S exhibited the table at Salone Del Mobile 2019 for the first time and at 3daysofdesign 2019 in Copenhagen. The first prototype was exhibited at FSC Design Award 2018, where the table was one of the finalists. The first prototype was sponsored by Mifapladen.
