This simple and clever table by Copenhagen based designer Julian Kyhl is a godsend for those in need of versatile furniture. The piece, called Timber, is a thing of stunning woodworking, which you can see with a naked eye. But what delighted me even more is its ingenius assembly principle. It is so easy and intuitive – one person can do it in less than a minute. Not a single screw or indeed any metal tool is required.

Here is how designer describes his vision: ‘Timber consists of 10 massive wood parts. It is held together by its own weight. Design and function is merged to let the observer see and understand the principles of its construction.’

Check out the video below to see this elegant assembly idea in action.
