History

Tap it lightly and the tabletop opens out. You virtually expect some kind of buzzing sound but the movement follows your hand noiselessly.

Wolfgang Hartauer’s tables are ingenious marvels. Sculptural cylinders that make a statement out of a room. Hartauer designed them while looking for a decent coffee table. Nothing suitable to be found? He made a virtue of necessity and simply created one himself. Ulm-born Hartauer, who studied architecture in Munich, shaped rings out of MDF boards and joined them together seamlessly like the annual growth rings on a tree. For him the fact that the base of the larger table would remain hollow had a beneficial side effect in that it provided storage space.

This table is not just a table. The black lacquered MDF rings lend it a structure. The revolving tabletop that opens out to the side can be used to store things and allows you to look inside. Hartauer’s motto: »All that is revealed must be beautiful.« The interior is striking: meticulously crafted with a stainless steel shaft that revolves noiselessly on slide bearings and makes the whole thing movable. Perfect like clockwork.
