Coffee Table in Pine by Ate Van Apeldoorn for Houtwerk Hattem, Netherlands
A coffee table with drawer by Dutch designer and maker Ate Van Apeldoorn for Houtwerk Hattem. Houtwerk Hattem began manufacturing timber furniture in the 1960s with a tree-to-product process that Ate Van Apeldoorn first employed when he started making timber bowls and beads in 1958. This table is an example of where the tree is central to the final design with its simple aesthetic and construction tailored to the Dutch timbers. See how the handles are created by cutting a hole in the drawers, instead of adding another element to the design. This is a versatile piece of furniture with style and a story.
