XXII Compasso d’Oro ADI special mention

A mono-material table with a monochromatic finish.
The important technological innovation it incorporates, combined with the tensioning capacity of the components, makes it possible to build tabletops in large sizes which remain perfectly flat and also extremely light.

Frame and tabletops
A table available in two versions:
Mono-material finish in matt white, made of acrylic resin and rock minerals. Tabletop, edges and legs covered with a 3mm thick sheet of resin.
Monochromatic finish in matt black, turtledove and red acrylic resin and MOREMATT high-pressure stratified laminate of the latest generation. Tabletop in stratified laminate with mass colouration; edges and legs in acrylic resin and rock minerals.

The 35 mm thick tabletop is a load-bearing composite board built with an internal frame consisting of either aluminium profiles and polystyrene filler (mono-material version), or an acrylic resin honeycomb and two outer layers of aluminium (monochromatic version).
35x35 mm steel legs with internal structural tie.
The acrylic resin coating is in the same matt colours as the tabletop.

The table is available in 23 sizes, height 73 cm.
The turtledove and red versions can reach the maximum size of 120x300 cm due to the technical limits of the materials employed to build the tabletops.

The table is also available in a version equipped with 1 or 2 openings and an undertop tray. The openings in size 350 or 420 mm are in aluminium.
A steel spring can be inserted into the predrilled holes (every 50 cm) at the bottom of the undertop tray to group the cables on the floor together.
matt white lacquer with tables in matt white
matt black lacquer with tables in black, turtledove and red

Please note
Tense is recommended for indoor use, only.
The dimensional tolerances in both width and length are 0/+5 mm.
Special sizes are not available.

NB. With the monochromatic version, there might be a slight difference in the tone between top and frame due to the variety of materials used: morematt for the top, and acrylic resing and rock minerals for the legs/edge.
