architect le corbusier devised his own measurement system that he named ’modulor’. the development was based upon dimensions derived from the human body, with the aim of creating a tool for good design and architecture. presented at the 2014 stockholm furniture fair, swedish design studio claesson koivisto rune have elaborated on the methodology and principles of le corbusier to create ‘modulor’, a table system that builds on a few basic components: a leg, a joint, a table skirt, and a tabletop. the modular furniture unit allows for profiles and tabletops to be specified to almost any format or proportion deemed necessary.

 ‘the table’s strength, both visually and physically, lies in the detailing.’ says claesson koivisto rune. ‘the extruded leg that meets the cast metal joint that in turn meets the milled profile of the tabletop’s edge… behind the precision of these details and their interrelated formal language lies over a thousand hours of work by developer and designer.’
