“Evolution”: Thonet presents new leg solutions for a successful table programme range
Perfect for customisation: the table leg
Contrary to the former oval profile, the legs mounted at the outer edges of the tabletop now impress with their noble drop shape and present a slender edge towards the outside. Inlays of wood, leather or other materials can be inserted, providing the table system with individual looks to match the visual conditions of any conference or training area.
Contemporary and elegantly curved: the T-leg
An elegantly curved cast aluminium foot stabiliser in three different sizes looks lightweight and replaces the former flat steel base of the new T-leg. One or two leg tubes mounted on the base provide the leg with a clear, beautifully designed appearance. The wealth of different T-leg versions combined with one of the numerous tabletops available for product family A 1700 guarantees a high degree of individualisation when choosing a personalised table system. Mounted at the centre of the tabletop, the T-leg version of A 1700 also assures plenty of legroom.
Tabletops made of glulam core board, veneered in beech, ash, oak or walnut. Tabletops also available in ThonetDur®. Screens made of wood or perforated metal sheet. Table legs (individual leg or T-leg) aluminium polished or galvanized or solid wood matching the veneers. Equipment with media technology according to individual requirements.
Uwe Sommerlade, the son of a civil engineer, was born in 1961. As a child he spent a good amount of time at his father’s office and designed his first houses and objects there. In his grandfather’s joinery shop, he learned how to work with wood at an early age. After receiving his baccalaureate and completing an apprenticeship as a joiner, he went on to study design in Kassel. In 1992, together with two partners, he founded the office Lepper Schmidt Sommerlade there. Since then he has been developing internationally successful products for renowned clients. He established his own studio in 2011 after the death of Christian Lepper.» More details
