We’ve managed to combine, aesthetics, engineering, geometry, proportions, symmetry and functionality to create a truly enigmatic glass top table series. The more you look, the more it draws you in. A truly amazing design that takes the basic criss-cross leg table and turns it on its head. In the past, such tables have either had very clumsy, angled joints right in the middle of the wooden legs (thus removing strength) or they are made from steel and simply converge at a central point before spreading out again. The pende series however, uses five legs (pende is in fact the Greek word for “five”) and it has each straight leg pass around the centre of the spiral without actually needing any jointing from one leg to another. Our patent pending designed polygon bracket is the only simple form of fixing the legs need, and the precise nature of the angles lets each leg rest on the leg to its right, whilst having the leg on its left rest directly on it. This makes the entire underframe network connection self-tightening and self-supporting as well as incredibly strong – and all without the use of any adhesive!
Each version of the Pende glass top table is available in either a square or round top. This is precision engineering and seriously thoughtful design. It’s hard to describe but it speaks for itself. Just look closely and think. That’s all we ask.

Patent Pending and Registered Design.
Note from Fiona: Harry worked on this concept for many, many months. It is beautifully elegant and deceptively simple in appearance. Like many genius designs, you just can’t see how much thinking and intelligence has gone into it, or can you?
