“Once a product can successfully fulfill more than one function it has even more reason to exist.”

The established designer currently resides in Amsterdam. On occasion, he gives workshops or lectures, but he’s mainly busy working in his studio. Jair Straschnow has a great passion for creating smart, ingenious products: “I’m a big fan of multifunctional furniture. Once a product can successfully fulfill more than one function it has even more reason to exist.”

This idea gave rise to the design of the Tablebench as well. The well-balanced classic design of a picnic table can often be experienced as static and limited in its functions. Designer Jair Straschnow got inspired by this observation and developed a modern and multifunctional interpretation of the picnic table: the Tablebench. This smart design is now part of the Weltevree collection.
