Decca’s Ratio Table by Brian Graham Receives GOOD DESIGN™ Award
Ratio wins 2016 GOOD DESIGN™ Award: Designed by Brian Graham, the Ratio table reinvents the classic farm table in a modern form. Ratio accommodates purpose and function in a straightforward manner; defining merits of decorum, value of fine materials and enduring value of the table as a place to gather, connect and celebrate. “An elegant table,” says Brian Graham, “is a tangible presence, a surface and a site that invites us to participate, to converse, to exchange ideas and form alliances. It is an icon of transaction and esprit de corps.” Robust yet refined, the beauty of this simple table is testament to the craftsmanship and veneer artistry of Decca Contract.
