Reminiscent of an infinite loop, the linear tubular steel frame forms a pendant corresponding to the tabletop and the central motif of the circle. Based on these two geometric forms, the table reveals ever-new perspectives. This dynamics gives it a spontaneous and young character as well as a classic one. The simple S 18, due to the graphic and at the same time poetic signature of the designer, represents a contemporary occupation with the Thonet brand.
Frame powder-coated, wooden parts lacquered.
