2014 – Floris Hovers
A table with a both sympathetic as well as clear construction. The combination of wooden parts and round moments as well as the metal couplings gives the table it’s sturdy yet elegant and timeless look.
The name of the table refers to the Dutch word donk which in different Dutch regions was used for an elevated area which clearly stands out against the lower lands and in all types often is an inhabited area. Synonymous to this meaning Floris Hovers thought of this name. A table always is an elevated place in the interior where people gather to talk, to eat, share in conversation, etc. In addition the designer is working in a town called Raamsdonk (province of Noord Brabant) and you could say that the table was designed on a donk.
