On Our Table
The On Our Table Story
On Our Table was founded in 2012 by Canadian designer Geoffrey Lilgen after outfitting his kitchen and dining room for his wife. Through this endeavor, he became obsessed with the beautiful simplicity of a solid wood board, the way it felt, the way it looked. Since then, he and his designers have produced a diverse collection of objects for the kitchen and dining room based on years of prototyping and restaurant testing.
Why We Love On Our Table
Through research, design, and development, On Our Table creates products that help spark your imagination as you cook, dine, and entertain guests. Each piece is developed based on specific food experiences, like noticing a butcher block too small to work effectively or catching a falling bread box that didn’t sit well on the counter. On Our Table’s goal is to collaborate with other designers to solve these often-overlooked issues by fashioning handcrafted objects that are efficient and durable for everyday use.
Fun Facts About On Our Table
On Our Table founder Geoffrey Lilgen was already an established Canadian designer as a founding partner of Pure Design, an Edmonton based manufacturer of furniture and home accessories, from 1994 to 2003. This company was exhibited and distributed internationally, culminating in an ICFF Editor’s Award for Furniture and a listing in the MoMa Design Encyclopedia.
