CharacteristicsSustainable, designed around the concept of the “Human-centered Workplace”, made in Germany
Wilkhahn’s Concentra and Conversa table ranges are ideal for new working environments. The two related, future-proof table ranges respond to the trend for more flexible office spaces. The Conversa and Concentra ranges (designed by wiege) combine high levels of standardisation with the maximum in design and usage options. With contoured edges and round table legs, Concentra has a softer look. With square elements and tight corner radii, Conversa on the other hand lends itself to more quadrangular design concepts. The ranges’ tabletops appear to float on air and the design of the table-leg capitals is striking. These features provide variety in terms of formats and finishes and lend the furniture a consistent, high-quality appeal.
A modular system of joints, under frames, capitals and table legs lies at the heart of the design of the two ranges. The underframe is set back and the table-leg capitals are contoured towards the back, creating a space that suggests the tabletops are floating on air. Fine lines separate the different elements of the frame and are form- and force-fitted with just one screw per connection. As a result, the highly precise and very stable structure becomes a design element. Despite the slim-line frame components, table formats of 75 by 75 up to 200 by 100 and 160 by 160 centimetres are conceivable. The latter is especially versatile as a good-value desk for two, a table for a project group, or part of a conference system.
The tabletops are optionally directly coated, or covered in laminates, or genuine-wood veneers. For high-end options, glass tabletops made of single-pane reinforced glass, or with an opaque black or white coat on the bottom, are available. The surfaces of the table legs and capitals are optionally white, black or silver-coated, or bright chromium-plated. The under frames are black coated. Both table ranges can be used as desks, for training courses and cafeterias, for meeting places and conference rooms.
Power-supply fittings consisting of horizontal cable tracks and vertical cable risers, modesty panels for desks or conference systems and table-table connectors are easily accommodated and can be retrofitted.
