Design Jasper Morrison, 2015
Solid ash or oak wood
Made in Denmark by Fredericia

"Discrete objects are more successful in building good atmosphere than eye catching ones." -Jasper Morisson

Pon is a series of solid wood side tables in different sizes that are both very stable, versatile and which can be used as either stand-alone furniture or combined in different heights.

Our living spaces increasingly have to accommodate a wide range of activities – from relaxing with a book or newspaper and working on your laptop or watching films on a tablet to social gatherings of all kinds where food and drinks are served.

Pon was designed in 2015 by Jasper Morrison, who describes Pon as an alternative to the "overrated and badly named 'coffee table'". Instead of taking up space, the Pon tables' modest size means they can be used in front of a sofa as well as beside a low chair.

Pon is made of solid oak or ash. The strong focus on the material is enhanced by the fact that Pon lacks the usual distinction between table top and underframe. Instead, the table top, column and foot form an integrated whole. The Pon tables stand as distinct yet unpresuming sculptures in any room, in addition to which the solid wood will patinate beautifully over time.

The solidity of the Pon tables makes them perfect for spaces where a strong and stable table is required, for example hotel lobbies, art galleries and public lounge areas. Pon is extremely hard-wearing, yet strikingly elegant.

Jasper Morrison

Jasper Morrison (b. 1959) is an English product and furniture designer from London. He received a Bachelor of Design degree from Kingston Polytechnic Design School in 1982 and a Masters degree in Design from the Royal College of Art, London, in 1985. He also studied at the Berlin University of the Arts, formerly the Hochschule der Künste (HdK). While a student, he gained a keen interest in modernist pioneers, such as Buckminster Fuller, Gerald Summers, Jean Prouvé and Le Corbusier. Morrison's objects provide a quiet contrast to the creative exuberance of the Eighties. The visual restraint, high functionalism and constructive simplicity attract attention to his work.
Fredericia Furniture began as a thoroughly Danish design house, born of a proud heritage. A heritage of unfaltering dedication to the perfection and progression of the design craft. Simple principles guide us along in our ambition to create and deliver a collection that we believe will be the modern originals of tomorrow. Simple principles that honour outstanding quality through a careful selection of materials, functionality and attention to detail.
