3 good reasons

  • from time to time you need an extra desk or table, but you'd like it to disappear once you've finished with it because it takes up too much space.
  • you work in a simple, uncluttered space with clean lines. You are a fan of minimalist desks made with a board and two trestles.
  • you need to be able to assemble a chic table when you travel and are looking for elegant trestles that don't take up much space.

how does it work?

4 pièces à emboiter et visser pour chaque tréteauEach trestle is made up of one horizontal piece and three inclined legs with rounded ends. Each piece is made of 20mm-thick beechwood. The legs are fastend to the horizontal piece with screws.


The trestle is very easy to assemble:

  1. for each trestle, slide the 3 inclined legs onto the horizontal piece, making sure that the central leg is pointing in the opposite direction of the other two (The words Eno by Aurélien Barbry are pyrographed on the horizontal piece on the side where the two outer legs should be pointing, the central leg should be oriented in the opposite direction).
  2. carefully position the holes in front of the metal screws, then tighten them with the included Allen wrench.

And voila, your trestle is ready to be used.


Aurélien Barbry, designer françaisAurélien Barbry is a French designer living in Denmark. He is also the author of the cork Wine & Bar line by Normann Copenhagen, on sale at LaPaDD.

His approach to design favors simplicity, ease of use and self-evident shapes.

His trestles are representative of his design philosophy: fun to assemble, simple shapes (that make some think of giant Popsicle sticks) and a minimalist, organic esthetic.
