The S–Table designed in 1953 is part of a unified collection that also includes the B-Table and C-Chair. With its simple tapered legs, sturdy frame and space-efficient rectangular tabletop – extends by a meter, adding an extra two place settings on either end, meaning it can now seat up to ten. The tabletop splits across the center and slides apart, creating space for two insert leaves, which are stored underneath when not in use. The entire table, even the extending mechanism, is made from solid and veneered oak or walnut.
The curators at Gubi make dwelling in the past look good. Their team of "treasure hunters" is on a mission to re-launch iconic designs from the 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, and today. That's over fifty years of eclectic, international, and groundbreaking mid-century modern design brought to the present.
