Kile is the Norwegian word for wedge, a joining technique Stine Aas has used to great effect in this simple wood coffee table. The table’s four plank-like legs appear to intersect the circular table top at different angles, a feature expressed where you see the two grains meet. The beauty of solid wood provides all the appeal here, with no fussy details to detract from the design.
With an MA in spatial and furniture design from Bergen Academy of Art and Design, Stine Aas creates products and furniture that blend character and simplicity. Her work is inspired by the everyday interactions between people and the objects around them, and she typically combines the visual, the tactile and the functional in her design. Working from Bergen, Aas has exhibited internationally in Stockholm, Helsinki, London, Milan, New York and Los Angeles.
