FDB Møbler is excited to unveil these latest items from the skilled hand of designer Thomas E. Alken. Elegant and simple, these two new lounge tables, at two different heights, add to the already broad range of uses and contexts that the popular Sammen series is suited to, whether it’s morning coffee, or drinks and canapes, or lunch, and much more.
Thomas E. Alken made his industrial-design debut after graduating from Design School Kolding in 1997. He founded his own studio that same year, and it was from there that the designs for the Sammen line emerged. Multiple collaborations with FDB Møbler ensued, including the 7-9-13 modern modular sofa and the Paso hunting chair, and the new Sammen tables carry on this fruitful partnership. “These days we are staying outside to a much greater extent than we did before,” Alken says, “and our outdoor spaces are used in numerous ways and must meet many different functions and needs. Some have different zones to migrate through, while others periodically readjust their orientation in step with the sun. And that’s precisely why the Sammen series needed expanding: to offer greater leeway for a relaxed style that makes use of one or more lounge chairs or benches.”
