‘Puddle’ table to debut at the Walpole Luxury Press Day – June 19th at Somerset House, London

Daniel Spring debuts his ‘Puddle’ series of polished stainless steel coffee tables, which can be stacked, used separately, or joined together in a variety of configurations.

Inspired by the reflection of clouds in water, these tables are intended to be both practical and glamorous, forming a conversation-starting centrepiece to any room. Clients are welcome to specify alternative dimensions and finishes, with a minimum order of eight.

“Walking home from the workshop through London Fields park one rainy March day, I saw a reflection of light in a puddle and thought it looked like polished metal. I worked the idea into a modular geometric shape that can be tessellated to make a table of any size. I wanted this piece to be interactive, and thought it could be great fun as a cocktail party game”.

The tables will be unveiled at the Walpole Press Day on June 19th at Somerset House in London.

Daniel Spring is putting the finishing touches on his ‘Mirage’ polished stainless steel vanity table & mirror, to be exhibited at next week’s Walpole Crafted showcase at Somerset House.
