Frame table by John Pawson for Nikari

Dezeen Showroom: John Pawson has designed the Frame table for Nikari based on a dining table originally created for his own family farmhouse.

An initial iteration of the timber Frame table appeared at the architect’s rural retreat in The Cotswolds, which he converted from a farming complex that dates back to 1610.

For Nikari, Pawson has recreated the table in solid, responsibly sourced ash or oak wood, with simple, clean lines fused by traditional joinery.

The design is finished with a natural wood oil mix, which the brand says is healthy for both user and craftsperson while making the table silky to the touch. The table is durable and easy to maintain, with a life expectancy of more than 100 years.

Nikari describes the Frame table as emblematic of Pawson’s “warm minimalism”, which sees him imbue all his works with a sense of peace and quiet.

The Frame table is available as a four-seater, six-seater and 12-seater.
