With the new model 1060, Dutch designer Jorre van Ast has created a solid wooden table with a graphic formal language characterised by subtle details. The graceful rectangular tabletop with rounded corners and a bevelled edge rests on a frame of two V-shaped pairs of legs that are cleverly connected by a traverse. The legs and traverse are made of solid bentwood and thus refer to the company’s proud bentwood tradition. Its filigree finely cut appearance and the soft, organically flowing lines of the individual wooden elements give the table a lightweight and contemporary air and offer an inviting gathering place for either private dining rooms and relaxed conferencing environments.
The bentwood elements give the 1060 its characteristic appearance. The round leg elegantly splits into three wooden struts: two form a reversed V as the table legs, and the third becomes the traverse that connects the two pairs of legs beneath the tabletop. The traverse not only serves as functional stability, but as a visual detail it also contributes to the table’s organic form with its curving returns forming 90-degree radius. The reduced frame construction also guarantees plenty of leg room. Thanks to its bevelled edge, the solid wood tabletop gets an especially refined character. The surface develops its haptic effect and feels smooth and soft due to the sophisticated processing of the wood finish. With its minimalist and at the same time expressive formal language, the table fits perfectly and coherently with the Thonet portfolio and can be ideally combined with numerous chair models.
