Modernism is the best word to describe the design principles behind the Niall Table. First are the clean lines of the tabletop, composed of a set of wide wooden slats resting on the railing and legs. There is no joinery on the tabletop, simply straight horizontal lines of positive and negative spaces.
The edges of the tabletop join the corner of the tilted leg, forming a clean and clear box like outline. Moreover, the differing thickness of the tabletop and table legs are disguised with a continuous rounded edge, running along each corner of the table. The railings are withdrawn slightly from the edge of the table, which highlights the clear geometric outline of the piece and enhances a feeling of lightness.
The modern geometric shapes are paired with a natural driftwood texture, which is a feature of distressed A-Grade teak, and which adds warmth and honesty to the piece.
