Tomás Alonso: A Frame Tables

Work / Furniture Design

Tomás Alonso shows us how to do beautiful furniture properly

RCA graduate Tomás Alonso commands a lot of respect here at It’s Nice That. We can’t help but admire the way he makes functional furniture in new and exciting (but often deliciously simple) ways. Sure, it helps that his products look really good, but it’s Tomás’ commitment to function over form that we appreciate the most – if it doesn’t do the job properly, he won’t bother making it. You can see this commitment to function throughout all of his work, but his ongoing project A Frame Tables highlights it the best. It’s a series of foldable trestles that can be stored flat when they’re not in use, meaning you can fit a beautiful piece of furniture in even the tiniest of spaces. No big deal? You try finding space to eat dinner in a typical London flat.
