DINING DESK by Poggenpohl
Poggenpohl in Kooperation mit Draenert
Market launch for the multivariable "Dining Desk"
Design study by Poggenpohl and the furniture manufacturer Draenert now produced in series
Poggenpohl will celebrate the market launch of its "Dining Desk" at the international trade fair Eurocucina 2008 in Milan. The slender, large-size dining table is characterized by a variable functional area which can be opened lengthwise either by hand or with the aid of a noiseless motor. The resultant open centre can be filled with stainless steel panels, a cutlery tray or chopping board. Stainless steel trolleys can be pushed in at the ends. These mobile units interconnect all areas of the kitchen and provide space for additional conveniences directly at the table, such as the Teppan Yaki grill and hot or cold containers.
The "Dining Desk" is the result of a cooperative partnership between Poggenpohl, the manufacturer of premium kitchens in Herford, and Draenert, the specialists for extendable dining tables. The study of the "Dining Desk" was presented by Poggenpohl at Eurocucina 2006. "Today's kitchen is not simply a place for cooking and eating, but has more than ever become a centre for communication and the focus of family life," says Elmar Duffner, managing director of Poggenpohl. "The positive echo from visitors to the trade fair and the trade press has encouraged us to start producing this article in series now."
The multifunctional table is available in natural stone or veneered versions. The various genuine wood veneers are all designed to match the different kitchen fronts. Poggenpohl has enlarged its range of worktops to include mineral versions to match the Dining Desk. These include the elegant green stone material "Verde Bamboo", speckled grey "Impala", red-and-black "Tropical Black", bluish-white "Azul Aran" and speckled red-and-white "Juparana Bordeaux".
