With table 1060, designer Jorre van Ast managed to design a modern piece of furniture that unifies the three themes of living, working and the Thonet heritage. “It was a special challenge to design something new and, at the same time, to not lose sight of the company’s past. During the development process, it was therefore obvious to concentrate on one of Thonet’s key competencies: bending solid wood. It was my intention to design a companion for the fantastic Thonet chairs.”
The table is available in stained or lacquered oak and ash wood. The walnut version has an oak frame lacquered in white or black. The oiled version emphasises the fine grain of the solid wood in an especially impressive way. Small inlays and knots are natural features of solid wood and characterise the surface. The possible colour deviations underline its fine appearance. The table is available in two sizes: 210 x 95 cm or 240 x 95 cm.
