Flexibility, innovation, versatility: achieving or facilitating these is a major challenge that can only be successfully met through teamwork. Active participation in changing layouts and methods and putting good organisational skills into practice are key factors. Which is why Wilkhahn invented dynamic tables with flexible settings in mind with a view to enabling people to set up their own flexible configurations.
Ingeniously easy to handle and superbly designed, the tables reflect the importance of communication and change processes while at the same time encouraging more physical activity, better utilisation of space and much lower facility management costs.
In 1994, designer Andreas Störiko created the legendary Confair folding table. As a world first it marked the inception of a totally new furniture concept with movable tables for conferences, training courses, workshops and meetings. Tool- free assembly, the absence of releasing or unlocking mechanisms and of the need for special skills mean just one single person can set up and re-arrange the moveable folding tables on their own. The sophisticated technology and the large lockable castors, as well as the elegant design and high-quality materials, are equally responsible for the table’s success. It’s a classic piece of furniture that still has no equal today.
Timetable has added a new dynamic dimension to furnishing multi-purpose training and conference spaces. In just one simple step, the table top can be tipped up and at the same time the foot section with lockable castors turned inwards fully automatically. As a result, the tables are easy to move from room to room and can be stowed away in an extremely small space. Intuitive ease of use, top quality and first-class design make the table a benchmark in its field.
The Logon range is the static equivalent of the dynamic tables. In intelligently planned settings it provides a cost-effective core configuration that can be enhanced by dynamic models to allow for different scenarios. Three characteristics run all the way through Andreas Störiko’s designs. They share rounded laminated wood edges with integrated impact-resilient profiles, slender uprights and elegantly shaped die-cast aluminium foot sections. The result is a table design that’s both highly attractive and functional.

Genuine wood veneers
In terms of its appearance and the way it changes over the years, wood is a unique, natural material. Changes are more noticeable or more subtle depending on the type of wood and how light or dark it is. If a more consistent look in different table combinations or repeat orders is preferred, stained surfaces or industrially produced genuine wood veneer are available.

Some laminates are also based on natural materials. They’re made by bonding cellulose and décor paper layers, as well as resin, using heat and pressure. This produces an extremely robust surface that comes in a variety of different colours. Laminates are often recommended for heavy-duty use, whether this relates to what the tables are used for, or to the fact that they are frequently moved around and reassembled.
The material consists of linseed oil and natural resin that is mounted on a backing layer and protected with a matt-glossy coating. In terms of haptics, it not only has a very pleasant feel, but has natural antistatic properties as well. Virtually no finger prints or dust stick to the surface. The surface is less hard-wearing than laminate, but over the years signs of wear and tear produce a distinctive patina, making each table a unique object with a story all of its own.
