In the space-accommodating narrowest width, founder and designer Morten Engelbrecht’s multipurpose rectangular table gives a choice of 4 table lengths. Appetit's sleek style rests in its sturdy polished aluminum frame, with varied available tabletop surfaces in veneer with matching wooden edges or laminate and linoleum with ABS edges. A handy switch-up and the table even goes mobile—via a pair of included casters that can quickly replace 2 of the stationery leg sets while the table still keeps its same height.

Founder Morten Engelbrecht found his bliss while working for a Copenhagen furniture store at age 17. He didn’t know it at first; he even tried twice to get into architecture school. “I realized that it was never going to happen,” he says, and in 1989 he started his own furniture company while still in his twenties. First as an importer of other European brands, Engelbrechts then developed into an international manufacturer, partnering with the likes of renowned Danish designers Erik Magnussen, Jørgen Rasmussen and Anders Hermansen.
“Simplicity, functionality, high comfort, the design must be useful,” Morten says as he ticks off the company’s priorities. “We don’t make small details just to make it look nice, that’s not how we work.” Creating timeless furniture is also how his company looks to the future. “Good design is sustainable, both in terms of the environment but also sustainable in terms of long-lasting products that you want to keep for a lifetime.”
