T12 Dining Table by Hay Denmark 130 x 80 x 74cm
DESIGN BY Hay
T12 stands for Table 12. The number 12 refers to the curvature on the
frame and table top which all have a 12 mm radius.
Initially the designers behind the table were inspired by the first version
of the iPod which was square but the softly curved edges made it
pleasant to touch. To add softness to the square table the edges were
designed with strong roundings of 12 mm – after that the rest seemed
more or less obvious – we just stuck to the 12 mm, which are repeated
on frame, legs and corners. The result is a table tight in its design but
not edged and uncomfortable to sit at, and because the roundings are
general the table presents itself with a visual unity and a coherent
Tables with sharp edges tend to be sensitive to impact from daily use
and can be uncomfortable to rest the arms on, but the edges of T12
are not only practical but also comfortable. The table top is available in
black and white stained ash. Profiles and corners are powder coated to
resist scratches and scores and are carried out in extruded and die
casted aluminum respectively.
