The Davy Table, designed by Michel Charlot for Vitra, is a robust design for outdoor use. Inspired by the iconic Landi Chair the Davy Table takes up the same material and mirrors the functional elegance of the classic chair from 1939. A lightweight, stackable table this complements Hans Corays legendary design, and together they make an ideal pair.
The Davy Table can also be attractively combined with other types of chairs and used in a diverse range of settings. Named after the English chemist Sir Humphry Davy who first discovered aluminium in 1808, the Davy Table uses the properties of the material to its advantage.Despite or perhaps because of its technical, raw-looking materials, this weatherproof table is well suited for all kinds of exterior environments, also thanks to its compact proportions.
The tables surface is fabricated from three-millimetre thick aluminium sheeting with rounded edges. A circular opening in the middle (for a parasol) recalls the characteristic punched holes of the Landi Chair. The four legs, made of bent aluminium tubing, are affixed to the underside of the thin table top with leg mounts in die-cast zinc. In addition, the table can be stacked at an angle up to 4 tables high. It also features plastic caps on the legs which can be rotated to level the table on uneven surfaces.
