the unique table edge of the ‘stammtisch’ table is subtly angled – not just typically vertical – making it seem as if it is moving outwards on either end, and inwards at the sides. conceived by swiss designer alfredo häberli for dutch brand quodes, the furniture piece exhibits a horizontal bar which runs the length of the table below, allowing one to rest their feet on it for a more relaxed experience, emphasizing the ‘object for social gathering’s’ informal character.

the work / eating surface is constructed from light wood in combination with laser cut sheet steel to give it a sophisticated yet familiar and more casual aesthetic. referencing his native roots, häberli has conceived the wooden legs to connect to the metal frame like the hand grip of a swiss army knife, giving the table a recognizable and playful look. the ‘stammtisch’ table is on show at imm cologne 2013 from january 14 – 20.
