FALTWERK COLOR CONFIDENTIAL

Dinner table FALTWERK

FALTWERK is a Product designed and built out of solid German Cherry wood and refined Steel. Its purpose is mainly for large-scale and open living and dining rooms. It benefits from the fact that its modern design still connects beautifully with classic interiors.

FALTWERK can be extended 1m from its normal size (length 240cm / width 100cm / height 750cm) to create a solid 3,4m long dining table. This size can easily accommodate 10 people.

The main attraction is the detail of the mechanism. The table can be unlocked and moved from either side. This smooth and easy movement makes clearing the table unnecessary and keeps everyday life flexible. I addition, there is no lifting involved – the whole mechanism can be moved almost weightlessly by any man or woman. The visible mechanism with its wheels and strings gives the table not only synchronized movement, but also attractive detail.

Even when extending FALTWERK for the very first time, its purpose is immediately clear.

Faltwerk餐桌由德国坚硬的樱桃木和精炼钢制作而成。该产品主要为宽大的起居及就餐空间而设计,其突出特点是在现代设计与经典居住空间之间架起桥梁,使二者浑然天成。Faltwerk餐桌可以从其普通尺寸(长240厘米/宽100厘米/高75厘米)延展至3.4米长,延展幅度长达1米,最多可容纳10人同时就餐。

但这件作品最吸引人之处还在于其构造:两头均可拉出活动抽板。同样方便的是,在延展餐桌时不用收拾已摆放在上面的餐具等物品。

巧妙的构造使每一个人都可以轻松完成。明显的钢丝绳使快速拉出活动抽板成为可能,并使推回抽板时所有的内部活动都能看得见。

我们认为将这款餐桌的构造功能在改变其大小时完全展现出来很重要,这样使用者每次延展餐桌时都能为自己的这件独特家具而兴奋不已。
