AT304 extending drop-leaf table in teak, oak and brass. Stamped
Denmark, circa 1953

With its curving wish-bone shaped trestle legs and bold brass mechanisms, the table brings a powerful sculptural presence to the room. Wegner revered the primacy of wood as a material - his surfaces are allowed to gather patina and character with age, to show a life led. Wegner believed that striking aesthetics must be based on a foundation of practicality: a table must be sturdy and useful before it is chic
