or Call to Order

The Oma Dining Table, designed by Sigurd Resell for Eikund, is a versa­tile piece avail­able in both a static and an extend­able version. The extend­able version can hold up to two leaves without addi­tional support­ing legs. Resell designed the Oma table in the mid-1950s while working at Rastad & Relling Tegnekon­tor in Oslo. The design reflects Resel­l’s empha­sis on logical construc­tion, where form follows func­tion. The table­top, avail­able in solid wood or Fenix lami­nate, boasts a sharp and modern aesthetic, perfectly balanced with the softer, organic shape of the solid wood frame­work. The Oma Dining Table is a time­less and instantly classic addi­tion to the Eikund collection.
