Hoof Tables by Samuel Wilkinson

February 18th, 2012 by retail design blog

The main inspiration for the Hoof tables starts from the foot detail. I have always loved the painted wooden chairs that have the end of the legs left as natural wood so that the paint doesn’t chip off if kicked or knocked. The leg ends of the table are sharpened at the foot – like a horse’s hoof is trimmed before it is shod.

This detail has derived from continuous exploration and development of production techniques. The fine edge of the tables is created from the soft chamfer being on the top and bottom. This also gives the tables a tactile feel and clearly shows that the tables are made from solid wood.

The foot detail is created by reversing the usual production process; most furniture details, which have a painted section and a natural part, are assembled, masked off, and then painted. Hoof is painted first, then cut back to produce the unique detail.
