Emma Olbers designed the S-wood coffee table as part of the "Stockholm Wood" project, which was exhibited during the 2012 Stockholm Furniture Fair. The coffee table is made of solid ash, with a finish of whitepigmented hardwax oil or black stained oil. The table comes in 40 cm and 68 cm sizes, as well as two heights, 37 cm or 44 cm. The legs are mounted entirely without glue or screws, by hammering in the small plug that then locks the legs.
"I hope we’re changing from a throwaway culture to buying things that last."
Emma Olbers is one of Sweden’s most noted contemporary furniture designers, even beyond Sweden’s borders. Emma was trained in the design course at Beckmans College of Design, and continued her training at the Sustainable Fashion Academy. She has especially won distinction for her strong interest in sustainable design. Emma Olbers is a multiple award winner for her design work. In 2014 she was won the prestigious Rising Star of the Year award at the Elle Decoration Swedish Design Awards. The jury’s explanation: The rising star of the year is hardly a newcomer to the design world. She’s worked as a designer for a long time and has created numerous products, but she remained comparatively unknown for a long time. In the last few years she’s stepped into the limelight with beautiful products with a strong feel for sustainability. Emma Olbers runs her own design studio in Stockholm.
