Stammtisch oval/rectangular by Quodes
The STAMMTISCH* is a ‘social’ table, inspired by the table for the regular visitor in a cafe. Alfredo Häberli translated this idea for the home and project market.
The light wood and laser cut sheet steel feel sophisticated and familiar at the same time. The wooden legs are connected to the metal frame like the handgrip to a knife. Quoting this Swiss symbol par excellence - the knife - gives the table a recognizable and playful appearance.
A subtle detail is the edge of the table top: the edges are not simply vertical, but their angle seems to move outwards at both ends, while moving slightly inwards at the sides. This shape detail changes so naturally that you only notice it in a second instance.
The possibility to let your feet rest on the lower horizontal bar strengthens its informal character.
In 2013/14 Häberli adds a new sibling to the award winning* Stammtisch family. Based on the same Stammtisch design, but definitely with its own character, this Stammtisch, being round, is truly the most social of tables.
