Marc Krusin: “The tables were part of the same development as the chairs. The chairs really inspired them in a way, inspired the detailing within that cube. The main structure is all being made in the USA, by a great bunch of guys who were so flexible throughout the whole design process — so fast and extremely talented. They were always available to make all the petty modifications that, between myself and Bejamin Pardo, the Design Direction, were thrown at them.
“Personally I would always try to strive for something that is clean, that is visually silent, to study and rework, and tweak the proportions and the details to such a refined level that it becomes as perfect as it can be within that framework.
“I see it as being a design that can fit into a lot of scenarios. To me, there is something very noble about an object that sits within a space not shouting for your attention, but blending into it. The outcome is absolutely contemporary, but at the same time absolutely classic and absolutely timeless.”
Drawing inspiration from traditional designs, but updated with an industrialized craft aesthetic, the Krusin Table complements the Krusin lounge and side chairs. Like the chairs, the tables leave no joint unresolved and no angle unconsidered, resulting in a subtle elegance that harmonizes with any setting.

- Marc Krusin
Marc Krusin began his career in Italy where he worked tirelessly at the heart of the Milanese design scene for more than 13 years. He became Piero Lissoni's right-hand-man and associate, leading all types of projects from product to interior design for clients of international reputation. He played a fundamental part in helping the studio grow from 15 employees to over 60 and from being a studio with mainly Italian clients to being a studio with clients all over the world.
He now has his own practice in London and continues to design spaces and products for clients in several countries around the world. Among these is Knoll for whom he created the Krusin Chair and Table collection, and more recently the Anchor storage system, both of which have become very successful ranges for this internationally renowned company. Krusin's latest introduction with Knoll is Pixel™, a portfolio of performance tables for the entire office with a focus on training and classroom spaces.
In addition to designing, Marc has taught and lectured at universities in Europe and Australia and regularly speaks about his experience at events and conferences.
