Thonet is presenting a new version of the conference table system S 8000 for the first time at Orgatec 2014: the round version, an extension of the version originally designed by the renowned designer Hadi Teherani, was created for a special project. Like the rectangular version, the circular table with a diameter of 2.80 metres combines powerful design with the highest degree of functionality: the tabletop, which is supported only by a striking triaxial stainless steel frame, seems to float in space – the table becomes a sculpture. Numerous technical extension possibilities make the S 8000 the ideal piece of furniture for contemporary working.
The new form of modern conferencing
The new round form offers space for up to twelve people and creates a democratic environment for discussion without hierarchies. The reduced design of the table allows for plenty of legroom and thus high seating comfort. The redesign was essentially oriented towards the original model’s fundamental principles. Based on Thonet’s design language, which was already a decisive inspiration for Hadi Teherani, the new version of S 8000 also focuses on the curved basic element: the stainless steel skid frame is the central element that continues on the surface of the tabletop like a ribbon. It can be equipped with multimedia modules; depending on the requirements, the equipment can be adjusted at any time. All cables are hidden in the support structure of the S 8000 – the table’s futuristic look remains undisturbed.
The cover lid of the functional surface is available in stainless steel. The tabletop is available in stained beech, maple, ash, black cherry, oak, walnut veneer as well as white mineral surface.
