Vaux Design by Union Design

The domed steel legs and tubular column create a clean aesthetic. The ability to add power to the work surface through the column increases functionality. Vaux is a robust table collection that suits a variety of design and work situations.

The Vaux Table Collection is a modern take on a classic star-shaped steel table base design that has been common for a half century

Most steel table bases have sharp angled bends creating broad flat surfaces and hard edges. Inspired by advancements in metalworking techniques, Vaux combines old and new technologies to advance the look and feel of the steel base to something softer, cleaner, and more relevant to today's spaces.

The entire Vaux product is designed around the repeated use of one simple part - the tapered and domed leg. The leg starts as a simple sheet of steel before being formed into a tube. Then the tube is tapered and capped with a dome to create one clean form. This formed leg is cut to various lengths and welded to a hollow steel column to create V or X shaped bases. The hollow column allows for simple assembly and wire routing. Bases in X configurations are used on round and square tops while two V bases connect with a stretcher for supporting rectangular tops.

Formed steel is a classic process that yields exceptionally durable parts. Combining these typical forming techniques with the advancements of robotic welding allows for a consistent clean aesthetic with the added benefit of being completely enclosed. The fully formed legs have no flat areas and no cavities on the bottom. There is nowhere for dust to settle, and the entire base is easily wipeable for cleaning. The tough powder coat is available in a wide palette of colors that accentuate the smooth forms and clean lines.

A variety of table materials and finishes, accompanied with the base's ability to be any color in many sizes allows for a product that fits any interior. Whether the project calls for occasional, cafe, or conference tables, in standard, counter, or bar heights, Vaux provides a uniform look for any application. By embracing old and new manufacturing techniques, the Vaux Table Collection is designed to have simple clean lines and round profiles that create a strong yet unassuming table that aesthetically fits any space.
