SAM – a shortening of “samarbete”, which means “collaboration” in Swedish. Is a brand new range of versatile tables from Fogia, designed in collaboration with Andreas Engesvik (NO) and Stefan Borselius (SE)

The tables are visually light as the legs are attached separately to the table top . The shape of the table top and the constructive leg mounting detail gives Sam a soft and functional Scandinavian appearance. The size of the table and the positioning of the legs have been carefully thought out in terms of utilization, and to make sure that everyone has enough space to sit comfortably round the table.

Inspired by family life and friends, the Sam table series invites us to gather and socialize around it. Its threaded legs in solid wood are held in place by (robust) mounting components to the table top. These industrial mounting components are concealed behind fine bentwood details that cover and embrace, creating an elegant yet practical solution. The laminate top is also highly functional when it comes to cleaning and durability.


The table is easy to assemble/disassemble, as well as lightweight allowing it to be moved around and stored with ease. The Sam dining and working table range is designed by Stefan Borselius , Note and Andreas Engesvik. This collaborative project includes all the designers that were involved in designing Fogia’s new collection that was launched in Stockholm in February. The Sam range will be launched in Stockholm during Swedish Midsummer design week in June 2014.

This is the film about making the table, we hade good time.
