20 years of the Confair folding table

Four question to designer Andreas Störiko


Wilkhahn has partnered with Andreas Störiko for a long time. Back in 1992, as a student he created a mobile conference concept and developed the Confair folding table two years later. The table’s speciality is that it can be folded up and opened out in one step, making it a template for a whole generation of furniture. Over the past two decades, Confair has been presented with numerous prizes and up until today the table range is a top seller at Wilkhahn. The anniversary is a good reason to interview Andreas Störiko about his work.
