Designed and hand crafted by artisan Lex Stobie, the Stobie coffee table is exclusive to Great Dane.
We at Great Dane have always wanted to offer the option of a round coffee table, but Scandinavian mid-century designers didn’t create many of them. That’s why we have worked with New Zealand-born master craftsman Lex Stobie to craft a beautiful round coffee table that holds true to Scandinavian design principles.
Lex’s work is often sought-out among admirers of the Danish aesthetic thanks to its honesty and ingenuity. Focusing on shared knowledge, locally sourced eco-friendly timbers and taking the time to do the job right, he shares our values and has helped us create the perfect coffee table. The original Stobie Table was designed with a glass top, the solid timber version is a new edition featuring brass detailing.
New Zealand-born Stobie is that rare breed of furniture creator who is hands on with his product from concept to completion. There is an honesty and ingenuity to Lex Stobie’s work that has seen his pieces become sought-out among admirers of the Danish aesthetic. His work is all about shared knowledge, locally sourced eco-friendly timbers and taking the time to do the job right.
For Lex, windows of inspiration come not in a white office cubicle but while cycling or taking time out from creating. He carries a pencil and paper so ideas can become sketches wherever he goes.
