Silver Table 1948
This oval dining or conference table can be extended with two extra leaves, while the frame stays in the same position. The table was originally crafted by cabinetmaker Niels Vodder in Brazilian rosewood to be displayed at the Copenhagen Cabinetmakers’ Guild Exhibition in 1948. It was subsequently made in two different wooden materials with a darker top and lighter frame.
The tabletop has 30 inlays of Sterling silver, that have inspired its nickname the Judas Table. The table is classic and simple in its shape but also exclusive and extravagant because of its fine detail - such as its silver inlays, that are strewn across the tabletop like a blanket of stars.
ABOUT THE SILVER TABLE
The positioning of the silver inlays is far from coincidental. They clearly indicate whether the table seats 4, 6, 8 or 10 people.
With the two additional leaves the table seats 14 people. The table is available entirely in walnut as it was originally displayed or with a teak tabletop on an oak frame. It is also available without the silver inlays.
