Piezas Extendable Dining Table
Designer Silvia Ceña adapts her minimalist dining table to an expandable version, with an extension leaf handily stored underneath the tabletop when not needed. Piezas (or “pieces” in Silvia’s native Spanish) features an embedded natural oak top slotted into its slender metal frame with the apparent ease of a child’s toy. But its knowing mix of elevated materials and confident clean lines underscore a refined presence.

“We wanted a challenge,” say husband and wife Mia and Torben Koed, founders of Copenhagen-based Woud, and they got one. Sitting around the dinner table a couple of years ago, they realized it was time to leverage their experience in private-label furniture and create something of their own. In just a few short years, they’ve masterminded one of the most influential Danish brands around.
Now adding accessories to the mix of furniture and lighting, Woud expands on the essential simplicity of Nordic design with an emphasis on finely crafted function and startlingly original form. Embracing upcoming design talents, both from Denmark and abroad, the couple is also keen on finding new materials that fit the Scandinavian tradition. Ultimately, they say, “We believe timeless design can express personalities, inspire people and create beautiful homes.”
