Solid, yet light; understated, yet impressive: designed by Werner Aisslinger as a “community hub”, the Thonet table 1140 brings together functionality, versatility and elegant simplicity. This new design features solid oak legs, rounded on the outer edge in a quarter circle, as well as smart, unobtrusive connecting elements on the corners of the tabletop. The tabletop appears almost as if it were floating. Thanks to the smart design, even chairs with armrests fit nicely under this extremely sturdy, stable piece of furniture. In addition to their aesthetic elements, the rounded outer edges of the table legs also offer two more clear advantages: even where space is at a premium, you don’t have to worry about bumping into any sharp edges, and, when four or more tables are pushed together, the rounded edges create a space for cables to be run down the middle. As it requires fewer raw materials and uses FSC-certified wood, the table also scores points in sustainability. The 1140 can be used almost anywhere: in the home as a dining table or desk as well as in the contract sector – from New-Work contexts to coworking spaces, from restaurants to hotels, from libraries to seminar rooms.
