SPINE Table (Large)
by Erik Olovsson
Spine is a series of tables consisting of two components - a thin aluminium sheet captured in a cast resin surface. The series is a result of many material explorations concerned with bent forms and enhanced flexibility.
The spine of each table is formed from a 10mm plate of aluminium. The aluminium is scored on both sides, allowing for the dramatic curve to be formed. The aluminium is anodised and set in place before the resin surface is cast around the skeletal form.
As the resin bonds it constrains the aluminium, suspending the spines ́ curve and creating the tables structure. Traces of the organic curve remain visible through the polished resin, its structure evident and essential.

This Product Plants A Tree
As part of ÅBEN's mission to make a more positive contribution to the environment, we have partnered with One Tree Planted to plant one tree for every product sold. Trees help clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, and provide habitat to over 80% of the world's terrestrial biodiversity. Forests provide jobs to over 1.6 billion people, absorb harmful carbon from the atmosphere, and are key ingredients in 25% of all medicines.
We need more trees. Find out more on onetreeplanted.org
