The Austere Trestles are simple wooden folding trestles, they are made from solid oak with brushed and polished stainless steel hinges. They are available in three finishes; oiled oak, white oiled oak and black stained oak.  

These trestles come as a set of two to match with a tabletop of your choice. We recommend the Linear Tabletop for compatibility, also by Form & Refine.

They were designed by Kristian Vedel in 1968 whilst he led the Department of Industrial Design at the University of Nairobi, Kenya. He found the classrooms were lacking functional furniture for the students. His trestles were the solution. Their folding capacity makes them easy to store when not in use. This is also a perfect solution for small living spaces; a room which is used as a home office could become a guest room in seconds.

Herman Studio

This product is designed by
Herman Studio

Herman Studio was founded in 2012 by two architects; Helle Herman Mortensen and Jonas Herman Pedersen. Their work spans from textile, ceramics, lighting and furniture design to interior design.

A characteristic of their design is each objects’ clear distinct silhouette. Working with an identifiable outline for each object, makes the design stand out simply, clearly and recognisably. Their great passion for design is in addition to aesthetics especially about construction and the use of materials. They work using a methodical and sequential process between sketches, models and prototypes. Their design process often starts by studying construction methods which plays a central role throughout the entire design process in their own workshop.
