‘Le Belge’ by Reinhard Dienes can be used as couch-table, night-table, auxiliary-table or sideboard.

The table-piece is base on a basic construction principle: The elasticity of wood. The flexibility of Oak permits a simple and astonishing way of securing the table-top and legs together by applying pressure using butterfly-screws.

‘Le Belge’ is composed of a single table-top and four rod-like legs made out of Oak wood. Pressure is what holds the legs and table-top together using butterfly-screws strategically placed near specially designed slots were the legs are inserted.

The need for tools to setup or adjust ‘Le Belge’ is therefore nonexistent. The Butterfly-screws also allow to vary the height of the table-top to any desired position. The different size table-tops can be combined with one set of legs, and the table-tops can be turned-over due to the angle of the cutouts.

The physical properties of the material allow this particular assembly form. ‘Le Belge’: simple, logic, flexible.’
