Coloured and ready to roll
- Normann Copenhagen adds new colours to popular mobile side table
Since 2012, the best-selling and versatile mobile side table, Block, has been headed at great speed towards the title of a modern design classic. The family is now being extended with three new and tempting colour shades which invite you to create varied expressions and stylish ambiences in your interior – a sophisticated dark blue, a clear and lively red and a calm and harmonious dusty green.
Small furniture pieces are ideal for adding colour and can act as a unifying element in your home decor. Whether you are fond of the monochrome, or a true fan of colour, the mobile Block tables are ideal for just that purpose. Block has a functional and charming design that can work anywhere in your home. The table is easy to move around by use of the handles which are natural extensions of the table’s legs.
Designer Simon Legald was inspired by the classic trolley table which he has updated and made his own with simple, yet impactful means. Block’s rounded shape, contrasting materials and the combination of craft and industry leaves the designer’s signature on the design and gives the table its unique expression.
You can use Block as a serving trolley or side table, in the kitchen, as a bedside table, for a home bar or in the children’s room. The look of the table can easily be changed, depending on the surroundings in which you place the table and how you style it.
Use the red table as an eye catcher or the dark blue as a refreshing alternative to black. The green version adds balance and brings nature to mind, or you can choose one of the neutral shades for timeless elegance.

Simon Legald graduated from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in the summer of 2012. His work consists of both small- and large scale products. Simon’s designs are often created in a dialogue between craftsmanship and industry. He also likes to incorporate the techniques that are necessary for the structure of a product into the design by highlighting them visually.
“Honesty is what makes a product understandable and is what describes the products functionality. If you understand the product, it does not need any explanation. The essence of my design is for it to be bought and used. Therefore, it has to satisfy not only the functional aspects, but also the psychological and aesthetic needs. For me simplicity describes the true identity of objects and makes them trustworthy. In my design, I try not to add any unnecessary details. I work with simplicity by highlighting the necessities instead of hiding them. It gives the product a simple and honest expression.”
