Fallingwater, a villa designed by architect Frank Lloyd Wright, provided the inspiration and the name for coffee table Frank. The house on the outskirts of Pennsylvania was built terrace-wise over a waterfall. Joeri Koolhoven, “That choice created a challenging contrast with nature. For coffee table Frank I searched for the same natural stacking of the elements. Not only in terms of balance but also in terms of the pure and real appearance of the applied material.”
By using sturdy oak in different sizes a natural balance has been achieved. Crosscut and longitudinal, thick and thin, upwards and downwards: the wood in all its variations gives tension and unity at the same time.
“Sitting next to a coffee table always gives a moment of rest. The table design must have that same sense of rest. A coffee table is practical and functional. Indispensable for a nice evening on the couch. In addition, it is a gathering place for things you like to have nearby: magazines, a good book, a beautiful vase.”
Frank has four levels allowing for an abundance of space.
