You’d be forgiven for thinking that all tables are the same. But they’re not. Because using a desk in your own four walls is only a solution in spaces dedicated to remote working and can look out of place otherwise.
Wilkhahn went down the opposite route in the quest for a table that blended in well at home and met the requirements of a desk too. In a nutshell, we wanted a piece of furniture that, depending on the size of the room and the occasion, could double as a desk or dining table, as a sideboard or extra table for a large group of guests, but whose stylish and neutral design made it ideal for a range of settings.
The answer was the Aline table, designed by Andreas Störiko, who was also responsible for the now-classic, legendary Confair folding table. Which is why we’ve come up with a new Aline table model that’s perfect for multipurpose use at home. The table top size of 150 cm x 75 cm is ideal and big enough as a desk and dining table for four, but small enough to fit into small spaces. With its frame of set-back slender columns, organically shaped aluminium foot sections and stable centre underframe, there’s plenty of leg room on all four sides. Therefore, it’s easy to grab hold of and move if required. To help make it simple to pick up, the new model’s core table top panels are made of composite wood and coated in white, just like the rest of the table frame. The colour lends it a fresh yet unobtrusive appearance.
The AT office chair also comes in white so that both table and chair are an attractive pair that also cuts a dash at home.
