STAM is a family of tables designed by Sami Kallio – Gemla

STAM is a family of tables designed by Sami Kallio 2022.

With STAM Sami Kallio has explored the traditional technique of sand casting iron.
A gently sculptured base which stands steady on the ground, with two pillars balancing the elgenat table top in solid ash.

The STAM family includes small side tables, coffee tables as well as dining and meeting tables.

The solid table top of solid 30 mm ash, despite its generous thickness, gives a floating elegance with the carefully balanced edge profile.

The robust construction of the table makes STAM suitable both for the private home, as well as the restaurant or meeting room.

STAM is a family of several different sizes and formats, from the small side table to the large meeting table.
All are based on the same ingenious construction of a solid foot and pillar that does not steal space when sitting by it.

STAM is offered in several different colors of hard wax oil.
As a side table, STAM is available in heights of 40 and 50 cm and in two different designs on a table top.




Sami Kallio studio designs furniture and interiors translating classical shapes into contemporary expressions with an industrial aesthetic, which resonate with a modern-minded audience. The studio is owned and managed by Sami Kallio, a Finnish designer based in Sweden, Gothenburg.

Sami Kallios background as a master carpenter and an MFA interior & furniture designer, combines the traditional woodworking craftsmanship with industrial design.

Creating an interesting meeting between craftsmanship and industrial production, which forms the base for the Nordic appearance that has become the Studio’s design hallmark.

”I base my design on a mixture of traditional craftsmanship and functionality, where the function is displayed as a design detail, that gives the product the it factor which brings something new to the design.” – Sami Kallio

The studio’s philosophy is based on developing products with a low manufacturing cost without compromising the quality of the construction or the design language.

Already at the beginning of the project, we work hands-on in the studio workshop with full-scale prototypes.

”Working with my hands, creating full scale tactile prototypes of the design is important for me. I need to feel and get to know the material. In the workshop I define and develop a detail or idea into perfection by using my hands.”
