The inspiration for the E8 table stood in the designer‘s kitchen for several years: A table dating from the post-war era, as if thrown together from different varieties of wood – narrow, long, with projections. The format appealed to Mathias Hahn so much that he used it as the basis for his own design. The result is called E8 and is named after the postcode (East 8) of the designer‘s former home in London. It is a table that also stands out thanks to its narrowness, length and extreme projections at each end. All of the surfaces are coloured with the exception of the table top. „The contrast between the colour and the wood makes the tabletop appear two dimensional and underlines its functional character,“ explains Mathias Hahn. Like its inspiration, its surface length means the E8 can be used as a kitchen table or a work table as required.
The E8-BANK supplements the table of the same name; the dimensions of the bench are coordinated to make possible to slide it under the table between its legs to save space. "The bench intentionally has no overhangs like the table, because i didn`t want the form of the bench to copy that of the table," explains designer Mathias Hahn. The seat is available either in wood or upholstered.
