Our Fabricius & Kastholm-inspired FK Scimitar Table is the picture of understated class, with smooth curves and a sturdy metal frame working in perfect harmony to create a glass-topped table like no other. Set at 43cm from the ground, it is the ideal height to slot into any dining room or office environment, and with a diameter of 120cm, it is the perfect purchase for the style-conscious socialite.
Named after the sweeping blade used by farmers to chop down crops, the FK Scimitar Table gets its name from the similar curves of its metal base. First released in 1964, it was one of the first designs to feature curved glass and steel, creating an eye-catching silhouette, while still allowing light pass easily through it, giving any room a fresh, airy feel. Set at the perfect height for informal entertaining, the FK Scimitar Table adds Fabricius & Kastholm's trademark panache to whichever room it features in. It truly is the epitome of Scandinavian style.
Fabricius 1931–1984 (Denmark) - Kastholm 1931–2007 (Denmark)
Preben Fabricius and Jørgen Kastholm met in 1961, while studying under Finn Juhl at the Copenhagen School of Interior Design, and would go on to forge one of the most fruitful and productive interior design partnerships of the 20th Century. Fabricius’ skills as a cabinet maker, teamed with Kastholm’s blacksmith knowledge led them to produce sumptuous designs from their Gentofte studio, expertly combining materials to create sleek, stylish pieces. Inspired by both functionalism and modernism, along with a healthy dash of 1960s panache, they devoted themselves to optimising shape, material and ergonomics. Their FK series is remembered as their most seminal set of designs, so much so that the FK 6726 ‘Tulip’ Chair won them the inaugural ‘Gute Form’ prize in 1969, recognising their innovation and craft.
