for sale is a restored vintage industrial drafting table by Sautereau Lucien of Paris, France. initially designed and patented in the 60’s, this table is as versatile as it gets.
first, it’s amazingly scalable. the stylish pedal has two parts to it: outer unlocks both, tilt and height, while inner locks it in. counter balance makes adjustments smooth and effortless. tilt goes all angles. height adjusts from 33 to 43.5 inches with the top horizontally (angled top goes floor to way up high). top measures 42 by 29 5/8 inches. when locked, the table is solid at any angle and height.
secondly, the table folds. yes, all that scaling later, it can shrink down to 42 × 5 × 42 1/2 inches tall. it also has cute little features like a mounted tray for drawing supplies and a little footrest. yes, it’s a looker.
thirdly, the table is a natural traveler. starting in Paris, France to Jackson, Michigain (that’s when we got it!) to Chicago, Illinois — there is a lot of history to it. and it’s come a long way. base has been stripped clean. the top has been sanded down in covered with teak oil, making it wine-proof and food-grade safe. we left the cut marks to preserve the story of it.
