    Krusin Coffee Tables

    Marc Krusin 2012

    Drawing inspiration from traditional designs, but asserting itself with an industrialized craft aesthetic, Krusin coffee tables complement the Krusin lounge and side chairs. Like the chairs, the tables leave no joint unresolved and no angle unconsidered, resulting in a subtle elegance that harmonizes with any setting. The base, available in a broad array of natural woods, with low-sheen and polished finishes, can be paired with a matching wood top or clear glass, leather or a variety of stones.


    Note: When specifying veneer tops, the base finish matches top. Contrasting top and base finish is not a standard option.

    Marc Krusin: “The tables were part of the same development as the chairs. The chairs really inspired them in a way, inspired the detailing within that cube. The main structure is all being made in the USA, by a great bunch of guys who were so flexible throughout the whole design process — so fast and extremely talented. They were always available to make all the petty modifications that, between myself and Bejamin Pardo, the Design Direction, were thrown at them.

    “Personally I would always try to strive for something that is clean, that is visually silent, to study and rework, and tweak the proportions and the details to such a refined level that it becomes as perfect as it can be within that framework.

    “I see it as being a design that can fit into a lot of scenarios. To me, there is something very noble about an object that sits within a space not shouting for your attention, but blending into it. The outcome is absolutely contemporary, but at the same time absolutely classic and absolutely timeless.”

    Marc Krusin began his career in Italy where he worked tirelessly at the heart of the Milanese design scene for more than 13 years. He became Piero Lissoni's right-hand-man and associate, leading all types of projects from product to interior design for clients of international reputation. He played a fundamental part in helping the studio grow from 15 employees to over 60 and from being a studio with mainly Italian clients to being a studio with clients all over the world. 

    He now has his own practice in London and continues to design spaces and products for clients in several countries around the world. Among these is Knoll for whom he created the Krusin Chair and Table collection, and more recently the Anchor storage system, both of which have become very successful ranges for this internationally renowned company. Krusin's latest introductions with Knoll are Pixel™, a portfolio of performance tables for the entire office with a focus on training and classroom spaces, and Pixel™ Lounge, a modular lounge collection designed for office spaces, campuses, airport lounges and beyond.

    In addition to designing, Marc has taught and lectured at universities in Europe and Australia and regularly speaks about his experience at events and conferences.

    “My intention is always to create visual silence, to create objects which are unobtrusive and which harmonise with their surroundings rather than shout for attention. One thing that has dramatically changed the way I work is simple awareness. Awareness of what is being asked and of what needed, and the realization that wonderful things can happen when we stop thinking!”
