To the Humble Rectangle

Not to sound too pretentious, but there’s something extremely inspiring about something as simple as a big ol’ rectangle. It’s such a simple shape, yet so bold. Such a humble presence, yet so commanding in any room. That’s exactly what the Ally table is. Simple, humble, commanding.

If you’re still counting your floor space in square metres, not acres, then you know how important a table can be. It almost always takes up substantial amounts of space, making small details important, and any mistakes enhanced by x10. Luckily, there are few of those on the Ally table.

Here’s a minimalistic piece of furniture that confidently rests in its simple, yet robust design, and will do so for years and years to come.

Ally table

Stefan Bräuner is the man behind the Ally table. With a background in both architecture and scenography, Bräuner is no stranger to the importance of small details. Just like how a mispronounced line can mess up a play, a messed up line can just as easily mess up an otherwise beautiful design.

The Ally Table is a manifestation of everything we believe in at Askman. Simple yet beautiful Scandinavian design executed with the best possible materials to ensure solidity beyond what you’d expect from something as simple as a table. The frame is a simple wood construction, the tabletop even simpler.

But Ally dares to be simple. To be enough in itself and a manifestation of Askman’s core values. The simple shape invites both bold and minimalistic dining chairs to sit ‘rond it – no matter which of the two materials you combine.
