THONET SETS THE TABLE
Conviviality and functionality – the dining table S 1091 and model S 1092 with an additional leg traverse are a real statement: robust and yet dynamic and open, the long table is an invitation for eating, playing, working or just comfortably spending time together. In combination with the matching benches, the generous seat group functions as a versatile communication platform. The wood of the tabletop, seat and backrest, the frames made of bent flat steel and the bentwood elements of the table’s optional leg traverse form a suspenseful and diversified mix of materials.
The long tabletop is characterised by tapering edges towards its ends and rounded corners. The veneered version has a straight edge. The frame made of thin bent flat steel in a black cast iron look has an especially lightweight appearance thanks to generous legroom and, at the same time, provides stability. Designer Randolf Schott was inspired by classic refectory tables that have their origin in the dining halls of monasteries. The two bench models speak the same formal language as the table. The angled back of the bench S 1094 without backrest provides a secure hold.
