We are at the Salone Internationale del Mobile in Milan - one of the main exhibitions for good design. Our colleague Alexandra has made a video clip about our new product innovations.
The continuous table top is available in natural oak or elegant walnut and does not – even at a length of three metres – require any reinforcing components. An innovative technology, invisibly concealed within the table top and framed by a beautifully crafted, mitred solid wood frame, makes this possible. The just 4.6 cm thick table top gives the table a seemingly floating appearance. It is supported by polished aluminium legs, which are elegantly integrated into the rounded table corners, thus creating a perfect symbiosis with the natural material wood. The seamlessly flowing transitions of both the S 500 chair and the T 70 table make these two a perfect match.
With this timeless design, hülsta and the designer Martin Ballendat set new benchmarks. This successful table design has been created for domestic and commercial use and is available in 4 different lengths and one width (180/220/260/300x95 cm).
Martin Ballendat has been highly successful internationally as a furniture designer ever since his graduation in Industrial Design at the Folkwang Schule in Essen. His designs have received more than 100 renowned prizes and awards since then, including more than 10 Best of the Best and Gold Awards. Martin Ballendat and his team work at two locations in Germany and Austria with famous brands from 14 countries (including Germany, Austria, Italy, UK, USA and Japan).
