Developed in collaboration with canadian manufacturer corelam, london-based designer benjamin hubert has created the world’s lightest timber table. due to unveil at the aram store during london design festival, ‘ripple’, spans 2.5m x 1m and weighs just 9 kilograms. because of the processes involved in producing the corrugated medium – 3-ply 0.8mm birch aircraft plywood – the laminated construction is made using 70-80% less material than a standard timber table, and because of its low weight, can also be easily assembled by a single person. the strength of the aircraft ply, in combination with the corelam, measures only 3.5 mm and is 200% stronger than traditional solid spruce wood. for its design, the top surface is made up of a flat sheet of plywood atop a corrugated one, and the A-frame legs are a sandwich construction of two corrugated plywood layers.
