The Oblique series captivates with the unique lines of the curved, endless steel tube. At the same time, the diagonally pressed tube becomes the central constructive element that gives the table high stability and at the same time elegantly holds the tabletop.

As a constructive further development of the tube deformation, similar to the principle of “tube aplati” according to the patents of 1987 and 1990, Tecta developed the “tube oblique” in 2005. This is a “three-dimensional tube deformation”, which the Düsseldorf Regional Court attests a “peculiar aesthetic” due to the “three-dimensionally shaped flat steel tube” and an “interplay between the lines of the outwardly pointing steel tube edge and the obliquely (English/French “oblique”) inwardly pointing side surfaces”.

The inspiration for the K2D Oblique is the good old secretary. Once intended for personal treasures, it is now ideal for laptops and iPads. The K2D fulfils all the requirements of a conventional workstation, while being space-saving, flexible and based on a unique construction: in keeping with French designer Jean Prouvé’s attitude to life, “You must feel how the material thinks”, the endless steel tube of the desk is bent at an angle in three dimensions using Tecta’s patented “Tube Oblique Technology”. A constructive detail that gives the desk high stability and at the same time elegantly holds the tabletop with its two drawers. “Every piece of furniture must be based on a constructive idea” said Prouvés, which the design of the K2D Oblique succeeds in doing in the most beautiful way.
Refining constructions and developing them further – that is what Tecta stands for. And this was how the distinctive “tube oblique” came into being in 2005. Created from bent tubular steel, this range of tables stood out for its novel and imaginative tube-bending aesthetic. It was a logical next step to Tecta’s patented “tube aplati”, and its light and delicate look belies its sophisticated and very sturdy construction.
Oblique nesting tables
The Oblique set tables K3A,B,C captivate with their reduced and clear design language, which is due to the unique construction: An endlessly curved line of chromed tubular steel serves as an elegant support for the integrated tabletop.
Oblique Coffee table
The Oblique coffee table K1A impresses with its reduced, clear and restrained design, which is due to the endlessly curved line of the chromed tubular steel frame and the invisibly mounted table top. An elegant appearance that can be easily integrated into almost any interior concept. The long runners on both ends give the design a unique graphic expression.
Oblique Side table with drawer
The Oblique side table K2A captivates with its reduced and clear design language, which is due to its unique construction: an endlessly curved line of chromed tubular steel serves as an elegant support for the two invisibly integrated table tops and the drawer, which seems to float. The drawer is lined with a cloth in the colours black, red, silver-grey or anthracite. Optionally, the K2A is also available without a drawer. The runners on the front sides give the design a unique graphic character.
