Originally designed by architect Hans Bølling, the Triiio table collection is being produced for the first time by Danish company Brdr. Krüger. Taken from a rough prototype that Bølling made when living with his parents in 1958 along with his original sketches, the company developed three versions, a coffee, side and dining table. The result is a beautiful mid-century design with a poetic harmony between the simple and the sculptural. Values that are reminiscent of the period when Hans Bølling first sketched the design, the table features a circular glass top set upon beautifully shaped wooden legs, with the two parts attached by hidden magnets. Interestingly, the table was originally designed with a hardwood table top, however Krüger felt that this hid the unique design underneath, and rightly so.
Born in 1931 in a small town of Braband in Denmark, Hans Bølling attended an Art and Handcraft School originally to become an advertising designer, however some years later he followed his passion for architecture and graduated as an architect from the Royal Danish Art Academy. He designed a plethora of art works, ranging from dolls and furniture to villas, living complexes and town halls.
