We are happy to announce that the Ponto table by Troels Grum-Schwensen has won yet another award.
Ponto table, designed by Troels Grum-Schwensen in 2019, has been selected as winner with the label of “Best of Best” in the category Furnishing in Architecture Masterprize´s Architectural Product Design Awards 2020.
The Architectural Products Design Awards recognizes and awards the greatest architectural product designers and manufacturers. It seeks to celebrate the ingenuity of products and materials that make great architecture possible, and shine a light on those who create well-made, functional, long lasting, sustainable, beautiful and innovative products.
“Being an architect it feels as a special honour to be awarded this architectural prize, recognizing my Ponto table, not solely as a good product, but also as an architectural object with huge spatial impact”, says designer Troels Grum-Schwensen.
Ponto has already been awarded both Muse Design Award & silver in European Product Design Award and is built on the same innovative construction as Attach table by the same designer. Both table-systems use gravity to lock the legs to the strong aluminium-beam, allowing free leg-positioning, tool-free leg-mounting, impressively long tables with only 4 legs and easy separation of the materials after its lifespan.
Ponto table is ‘exclusivity and simplicity’ defined, where every detail breathes both designers and Lammhults sense of innovation and quality. Ponto is the table that allows modern technology to meet solid craftsmanship. The legs of Ponto are made of carefully selected solid wood that is milled to fit the aluminum profiles that support the entire table. Nothing on Ponto is unnecessary, with a maximum length of 558 cm, only four legs and table surfaces are all that is needed, no more no less, together they are whole and that is remarkable in its simplicity. Assembly is quick, by sliding the leg onto the aluminum profile to the desired position. The pyramid-shaped legs, inclining in two directions, adds stability and character to Ponto, which has got its name from the bridge-like appearance coming from those inclined legs and the long span in between them.
