A sculpture in space: the new conference table by architect Hadi Teherani combines high functionality with perfected quality and visual lightness. The Hadi table resonates in contemporary settings where design integrity and material matter most. Like a ribbon, the elegant curved metal base bracket continues on the surface of the tabletop where it becomes a functional surface - the central element. Originally designed for Gebrüder Thonet in Germany the Hadi table is now manufactured and distributed by Nienkämper for the North American market. It can be equipped with multimedia modules; depending on the requirements, the equipment can be adjusted at any time. All cables are hidden in the support structure of the Hadi table. The table’s elegant look remains undisturbed, timeless and architectural.
Top: 2 3/8” wood veneer with solid wood edge. Metal base bracket / Cover plate functional surface: Stainless steel or powder-coated finish.
