A tray that doubles as a small table on the floor or on a table. A little table in its own right that will create order in any busy space. The Bridge Tray will be as beautiful on the floor, brought outside, to another room, resting on the specially designed Bjork pouf, or on a table. A flexible piece of furniture that facilitate the use of any space.

Does a table require legs, one might wonder? Not at all. Vice versa, could a tray have legs? Yes, but a rim with slits instead of legs, all according to designer Carina Seth Andersson.

’I often work sitting on the floor,’ Carina Seth Andersson explains, ‘and I prefer not having to risk spilling things lifting a tray by the corner, or trip over protruding handles. Bridge Tray sits a little bit up from the floor, and you easily grip it thanks to the slits.’

She uses it on large table as well: just to pick it up and carry away to its next setting. Her creation is a distinctive visual response to a typological challenge for ever-changing modern spaces, be it at home or in a public setting.

The tray was originally born in Taiwan where Carina Seth Andersson along with five Swedish designers was invited by NTCRI (the National Taiwan Craft Research and Development Institute) to create contemporary interpretations of traditional Taiwanese lacquer art. Now in finely grained oak plywood that evokes a finely crafted Scandinavian natural look.

Design House Stockholm is a publishing house for contemporary Scandinavian design, with products ranging from furniture to fashion, lighting, tabletop and limited studio editions. With the aim of enhancing everyday life, Design House Stockholm has been changing the way people think about their living and working space for many years.

They credit their success to the way they work; in an extensive network of more than 60 independent designers, in the same way publishing houses work with authors. They collaborate with both new, up-and-coming talent and established names.

Although the majority of their designers are from Scandinavia, Design House Stockholm work with designers from all over the world in order to find that special Scandinavian touch. Unlike many other companies, they don't try to force the fresh and free designs into a fixed production apparatus. Instead, they use their extensive networks to find the right kind of production facilities, at the same time as exploring new production methods. All this transforms ideas into real products.

Their collection of functional and aesthetically refined design products of timeless appeal ranges from tableware and lighting to furniture and textiles. Today their collection boldly ranges from the conceptual to arts and crafts-like pragmatism, from decoratively maximalist to utterly minimalist.
