When architect Ole Schjøll sketched his Wire Table in 1984, little did he know that 32 years later he would present and realize his drawings for the table and that it was to be put into production. Now the table is here – and this adds a poetic twist to the story of Ole Schjøll and his table.

The Wire Table is the first piece in the AP. Serien. Designed and produced in Denmark, the table has gone through five stages of production. From initial sketch and final drawing, the table is bent, welded, polished, cut, painted and finally assembled and finished at A. Petersen.

The table’s stainless steel wires are manufactured and bent by FK Trådindustri, located in central Jutland. The ten wire parts are welded into one single frame by blacksmith Mikkel Kjærholm. The frame is then sent to OP Stål in Ringsted, where it undergoes so-called electrolytic polishing – a process that is both more environment-friendly and durable than older chroming techniques.

Meanwhile, the steel tabletop is cut and bent in Gladsaxe at Klip og Buk. Corners, edges and cuttings are sanded and then the plate is shipped to Laduco Industrilak in Ishøj. Here it is hung on a hook and powdered paint – completely free from solvents – is sprayed onto the tabletop using electrical charge. Next, the plate is heated in an oven for 20 minutes at 180 degrees Celsius.

The poetic twist? Let’s go back to the blacksmith Mikkel. Mikkel is the grandson of legendary furniture architect Poul Kjærholm (1929-1980). Kjærholm was Ole Schjøll’s teacher at the The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture. Thus a circle is completed and a fine heritage lives on in the Wire Table by Ole Schjøll.
