JHF Table uses ultra-lightweight, high-rigidity aluminum honeycomb panels, designed to be more elegant. Atelier OPA Co’s long experience in the field of aluminum honeycomb furniture allowed them to perfect this technology to reduce weight (only 14 kg) and simplify lines. The 3 mm end of the top panel made of honeycomb panels, the 50 mm radius arcs at the four corners, and the 14 mm thick extruded aluminum legs simultaneously represent thinness and rigidity. Since the screw is inserted from the lower side of the leg and fixed to the top plate, any joint is invisible, making the structure more elegant.
What did the judges have to say?
One product that just leapt of the page for me was the JHF table. As soon as I saw it, I thought it was amazingly beautiful and I delved in to try and find out how they made it look so elegant. The attention to detail and the combination of industrial design intent and manufacturing capability has resulted in a piece of furniture that makes you look twice, want to reach out and touch it, and marvel at the strength achieved in those proportions.Stefan Knox, Founding Director, Bang Creations
