Hannes Wettstein, 2003
Used as a dining table, its pillar shape makes it easy to sit down, and hotels and restaurants can create long rows of tables without any hassle.
rq is the exclusive version of a pub table, just as it was offered as modular furniture in the 1932 catalogue. Used as a dining table, its pillar shape makes it easy to sit down, and hotels and restaurants can create long rows of tables without any hassle. As a 90cm or 100cm high table, it impresses with its classy appearance. In both cases its solid construction excels.
The table comes in two base versions:
rq has a pillar made from solid beech, oak, or ash. Pillar base and base plate are made from polished chrome-nickel steel, the table top is veneer.
rq light has a metal pillar with powder-coating just like the base plate. The table top comes in a choice of solid wood, synthetic resin, linoleum, or veneer.
