Every design has its own history for me. This started two years ago when designing trays made of oak wood. From there it was just a small step to the idea of putting this tray on legs. And since tables always stand in the way when they’re not being used, I’ve designed my tables so that they can be stacked on top of each other. The legs are tucked up like on a milk stool., Tobias Grau remembers, reflecting the beginnings of his Tray Table, designed for Auerberg.
