Chip off the old Block

Danish designer Simon Legald has channelled the classic design of tray tables in designing Block.

Inspired by the design of classic tray tables, Danish designer Simon Legald has combined craftsmanship and industry in designing Block.

Block is a mobile side table on wheels that has been designed with a light and airy feel. The table is of rectangular design and is easy to move around using one of its four handles, which are a natural extension of the table’s legs.


A simplified and updated version of the well-known tray table, Block’s hard steel is softened by its rounded shape and counterbalanced by the warmth of the wood.


“Designing is a game between craftsmanship and industry, and both elements need to come together,” says Simon Legald “Block is a simplification and modernisation of the well-known tray table. It is a side table with wheels and an alternative to the traditional coffee table.”


The Block table is a versatile piece of furniture with a wide range of applications. The feel of the table changes depending on its surroundings and it is easy personalised through styling.
