As Long As You Like is the two designers’ first collaboration. It is an archetypal long table that can be tailored to any length through the introduction of additional leg modules and tabletops. This makes it suitable for use in almost any scenario – home, office or hospitality environment. Made from oak and Larvikite (a stone unique to Norway sourced from the Lundhs quarry in Larvik), the table is their attempt to create a surface composed of contrasting materials, achieving an aesthetic effect while illustrating the table’s modularity. It is available in two widths, and lengths stretching from 1600mm to ‘as long as you like’.
