A new twist on a time-tested design
Often, less is more, and that’s proven once again with our new Clip-board series. We’ve embraced one of the oldest construction principles around, the humble trestle, and turned it into an ingenious system for tables and benches that relies on the force of gravity – rather than hardware – for structural stability. Trestle tables have been around pretty much since the invention of tables, but never quite like the Clip-Board.
The Clip-board series consists of a modular table, bench and picnic table. In each variation, the weight of the hardwood tabletop and/or bench seat pushing against the trestle frame secures the structure with no additional hardware required. Because the planks fit through narrow openings at the top of the trestles, they act like levers that exert forces against the trestles to form the self-supporting structure.
The tabletop and bench seat are constructed of separate planks of durable FSC certified hardwood – four for the tabletops and three for the benches – that fit together or break down for easy storage. The trapezoidal trestles are tubular steel available in matte white,or matte black powder coated versions, or in brushed stainless steel.
In each version – Clip-board Table, Clip-board Bench, or the Picnic combination picnic table and bench – the total length is 220 centimeters – long enough to comfortably accommodate 4 on each side
