Drop-leaf dining table, Model AT-309, designed by Hans Wegner in the early 1950s and manufactured by Andreas Tuck.

Hans J. Wegner became world-renowned for his chairs, but he also designed a broad range of tables, where he was just as thorough and artistic on the proportions, construction, function and style as with the design of his chairs. To Wegner, the most important part of this type of furniture was not the table top, but rather what was underneath. For the supporting structure he was, as with many of his other designs, heavily inspired by furniture designs of the past and here he used cross legs, which have a long tradition in history and are for example known from 17th century Spanish tables.

On this version that has a grain that has come out beautifully over time, the slender cross legs are strengthened by thin metal struts, which hold the crossed legs together, while emphasizing the light and floating design. The table has a wooden pull-out frame to support the two folded extra leafs, providing extra space. Especially with the leaves out Wegner’s tables are so expressive that they - like his best chairs - turn into grand sculptures that claim their space in the room almost effortlessly. The table is stamped at the bottom with the manufacturer’s and maker’s mark. ~HG
