Plint Coffee Table by Cecilie Manz for TAKT
Alexander Zaxarov
Aug 27, 2020

Danish furniture brand TAKT has collaborated with Cecilie Manz to release Plint, a crafted wooden coffee table with leather hinges and a simple self-assembly mechanism.

Cecilie Manz’s ingenious solution reduces the table to just two components: tabletop and apron. The tabletop and side pieces are cut from a single, flawless piece of wood, which is handselected and cut precisely from timber logs to create the desired surface texture and grain. The finished planks are then machined to ensure the highest possible degree of precision before the leather components are fixed into place. This allows the table to be shipped in a narrow, completely flat package, and to be delightfully assembled with ease: no need for glue, bolts or screws.
