'replex' table by oormerk

oormerk is a design studio based in the southern town of breda in the netherlands consisting of ruud van hemert and stijn van oorschot. the studio has a number of furniture and architectural pieces in their portfolio including the ‘replex’ table. this long dining table was created from a collection of old furniture pieces. the pieces were disassembled and glued together. this block of wood was then cut into sections and assembled into a table. this process leaves the imperfections of the materials intact creating a very unusual surface. they will be exhibiting as part of the ‘talent’ exhibit at designhuis during dutch design week.


  • Very cool. I love these photos.

  • Clever and beautiful use of materials…for some reason the design of the table legs aren’t as striking to me and feel a little perfunctory.

    I would probably still enjoy it in my home nonetheless.

  • It’s a great recycling idea. I like looking at the old made new.

    I really want to touch it and see how it feels.

    A table that allows the mind to wander.

  • The second one from the left looks like a penis.
