S Table

Like most of the best mid-century designs, the S-Table was born out of necessity. Homes that had been rebuilt after WW2 were distinctly smaller than their pre-war counterparts, and modernists like Marcel Gascoin realised that a new kind of dining room was needed. He set to work on a minimal, extendable table — lithe but perfectly formed so as to allow for spontaneity as and when needed. It's innovative extending functionality and clean lines soon turned it into a household staple – the same utilitarian characteristics that make it ideal for modern homes today.

Product Description

Gascoin grew up around boats and became fascinated by their efficient use of space – even teaming up with fellow mid-century designer Jean Prouvé to design a boat’s cabin for a competition. After the war, the reconstruction effort meant that while new homes were built, people had less space and wanted a new aesthetic that enabled them to move on from the past. Gascoin and his contemporaries – modernists such as Prouvé, Charlotte Perriand, and Le Corbusier – felt compelled to use their skills to design thoughtful furniture that could fulfil this brief.

Gascoin started each project by carefully calculating the available space within these new homes and the needs of the family. It was through this empathetic approach in service to the people of France that he created a new standard of useful furniture characterized by flexible functionality and understated elegance. A new design language was born, overturning the past. Gascoin realized that the oversized, ornate dining tables of old were no longer appropriate for everyday family life, but equally understood that modern families would still want to host dinner guests from time to time. He developed the S–Table, a clever extending form that captured the imagination of post-war French homeowners. It was well-received at the time and its simple adaptability also suits today’s informal dining habits and evolving lifestyles.
