Dining tables from MDF Italia, Designed by Michele Cazzaniga

Product description

Designed by Piergiorgio and Michele Cazzaniga in 2009, the Tense represents the archetypal table. Characterised by the consistency of its form and finishes, it is an icon of lightness and flexibility; thanks to its internal tension, it can also be extended to a total of 4 metres in length. Part of the MDF Italia collection, the Tense family is now available in 16 finishes, 5 heights and 36 sizes.
For The Principle of Lightness Collection, the Tense has been reimagined in a hand polished aluminium finish and measures 100x240cm.


A 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 the versions:
- matt white, made of acrylic resin and rock minerals.
Tabletop, edges and legs covered with a 3mm thick sheet of resin.
- matt black and medium grey acrylic resin and FENIX 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 35mm thick tabletop is a load-bearing composite board built with an internal frame consisting of either aluminium profiles and polystyrene filler (matt white version), or an acrylic resin honeycomb and two outer layers of aluminium (matt black or medium grey version).
35x35mm steel legs with internal structural tie.
The acrylic resin coating is in the same matt colours as the tabletop.

The Tense table is an icon of the MDF Italia collection, a project which develops and evolves in terms of its own TENSITY.

At Imm 2019, the table evolves and becomes a collection, almost a system, with the introduction of new heights and dimensions.

Today Tense, together with Tense Material and Tense Intarsia, comes in:
- 5 heights (H35, H45, H73, H90, H110)
- 36 sizes
- 12 finishes
- 170 types
- around 1584 variants

The table is also available in a version equipped with 1 or 2 openings and an undertop tray. The openings in size 350 or 420mm are in aluminium.
A steel spring can be inserted into the pre-drilled holes (every 50cm) 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, and medium grey.
