Harmonious combination of connections and
self-supporting elements


Otoko is a solid-wood design table that is perfectly suited to timeless interiors, but also demonstrates its strength as an elegant and minimalistic object in modern surroundings.

The underlying design of this masculine table has been inspired by the Japanese wood joints found in shrines and temples. The Otoko is characterised by its self-supporting construction. All binding elements are invisible due to the use of unique, modern connection techniques.

Price starting at € 7.842,- ex vat.

Solid wood

Wood is a beautifully lively natural product. Differences in colour, drawing and structure give wood character. It is a lively and warm material that becomes more beautiful with age. Our tables are finished with a very high quality two-component lacquer.

Solid wood ‘warps’. This means humidity and temperature can change the size and shape of the material. ‘Warping’ risks can be reduced if the room temperature remains between 15°C and 24°C and humidity remains between 45% and 60%. So do not place your table too close to a heat source (stove, fireplace, radiator, etc.).

Light and air can cause discolouration in wood. Excessive discolouration can mainly be attributed to strong sunlight. Thus it is best to place your table so that it is not exposed to too much sunlight.

Our tables are finished with a very strong high-quality matt lacquer. However, there are certain things you can do yourself to keep your table beautiful.

When your table has just been varnished, it will take 2 weeks until it is fully cured. So in the first period, avoid heavy loads, heat and excess moisture.

Important tips for wooden products with a matt lacquered finish:

  • For daily maintenance, the table can simply be wiped with a soft, dry cloth
  • Make sure that spilled liquids are cleaned immediately using a soft, clean and slightly moist cloth
  • Do not use caustic products
  • Use a coaster to prevent water rings. It is also recommended to use coasters for hot objects, best to always use a placemat or tablecloth to avoid scratches and stains
  • Prevent scratching of abrasive surfaces by using felt pads
  • It is better not to use abrasives, rough sponges or cleaning equipment, as this will scratch the table top.

Although lacquer is more resistant to moisture than oil, you can expect stains and circles if water or liquid remains on for a long time. Especially moisture that cannot evaporate because it is covered or locked up, will eventually affect the lacquer. So be careful with wet cloths, cups, vases or dishes.


About the design of

The underlying design of the Otoko table can be traced back to the Japanese wood joints found in shrines and temples. The name is a literal Japanese translation of the word ‘masculine’. As a result, the Otoko table is also characterised by masculine lines and nuances.

The longer one spends examining the table, the more details catch one’s attention. Every detail in the Otoko has been carefully considered by Francine Broos Interior Architects: from the almost invisible connections to the distinctive cross-connections made from wengé wood. Pure materials and clear lines are characteristic for designers Francine Broos and Bas Leenders.

The table’s impressive – for the trained eye – structural elements have been incorporated in a very subtle and almost invisible manner. The middle beam, which in fact divides the two solid sheets of wood, and the braces that hold the foot together, helps to create a strong self-supporting structure that has a unique minimalistic character.

The underlying design of the Otoko has also been used for a similar ‘feminine’ design called Josei. Both tables are suitable for a variety of purposes: dining, work or conferences. They are perfect for (spacious) homes as well as work environments.
