Signet Trestle Table by Daniel Schofield

Signet is a minimalist table created by London-based designer Daniel Schofield. Created for modern live / work, nomadic lifestyles where people might want to reconfigure there space regularly or move often. A light and strong trestle that collapses in seconds making them easy to store away and transport. The trestle is split into two halves which is held together by two aluminium rings. The rings slide over each half, bringing them together and locking them into place. The rings themselves are coated in cork rubber compound to give grip to whatever surface is placed on them.
