British designer Benjamin Hubert has designed the world’s lightest timber table as part of an internal studio research project into lightweight constructions. The Ripple table is 2.5 metres long, 1 metre wide, and weighs just 9 kilograms. Made using 70-80% less material than a standard timber table, Ripple can be assembled and manoeuvred by a single person.

The table’s impressive strength to weight ratio is enabled by an innovative production process of corrugating plywood for furniture through pressure lamination,says Benjamin Hubert.
