 iF DESIGN AWARD TO ATTACH TABLE SERIES BY TROELS GRUM-SCHWENSEN FOR LAMMHULTS

ATTACH table-system, designed by Danish Troels Grum-Schwensen for Lammhults, has since its launch in February 2016, received no less than 4 design awards.

The innovative table-system ATTACH was very well received when launched for the first time at Stockholm Furniture Fair 2016.

Since then, also design juries around the world have recognized the innovative, functional and unique aesthetic qualities of the flexible table system.

Most lately the iF design award jury found ATTACH good enough for an iF Design Award, which was announced on February the 1th 2017.

During 2016, Attach table system received the American IDA Design Award (IDA) in June completed by the Design S Award as well as the European Aluminium Award in November.

Cecilia Hallberg, CEO at Lammhults, states;

"It´s a fantastic feeling to receive iF Design Award. We are very proud and Troels has really succeeded with the design of Attach. The table shows high level of design, innovation and sustainability. Attach is produced locally in the neighbourhood of Lammhult. We are certain to say that many customers will enjoy to use Attach."

The designer behind the innovation and forming of ATTACH, Troels Grum-Schwensen, quotes;

"After many years of intensive work with innovative furniture-constructions, exploiting the gravity for stabilizing and locking, it has been a special pleasure to realize this table-system in a tight cooperation with Lammhults and the brave product-developers; Andreas Mattisson and Niklas Hedin. Since the start of the design-process, many years ago, doubts and challenges have been frequent, as the idea goes close to the edge of what you would normally consider as physically possible. Lots of work and the progressive and forward-looking attitude at Lammhults, however, seem to have overcome the problems.

In this perspective I feel, at the same time, humble, honored, happy and grateful about the much recognition from top level design professionals around the world."

ABOUT ATTACH:

Troels Grum-Schwensen has taken a novel approach to exploring and developing innovative furniture designs, where gravity locks or stabilises the structure, for decades now. In an ambitious collaboration with Lammhults, the designer has now, with "Attach", taken his designphilosophy to new heights with a table system that, using just a few simple basic elements, can be adapted to suit a variety of rooms and offers scope for modification over time. The legs and frames of recycled aluminium can be matched with table tops in almost any format.

Thanks to its ingenious design, "ATTACH" legs do not need to be screwed, threaded or twisted on. They are attached to the frame in one simple step and the leg locks itself into place with the aid of gravity.

The most common table formats, such as rectangle, square and circle, can also be supplied in exact sizes to suit customer requirements. To the centimetre.

Combined with a wide selection of table top materials and a choice of colours for the table legs, Lammhults is offering a mass-produced yet unique table that can be freely adapted to the specific room and environment.

Troels Grum-Schwensen is educated as an architect and designer from the Royal Danish Academy of fine Arts in Copenhagen. With his own studio in Copenhagen since 1989, the designer has been awarded a number of design prizes throughout the years
