Elegance meets stability. The timeless design of our Y-table series can be used in diverse applications. The Y-tables were originally developed as fine and practical furnishings for work, studio and conference spaces. However their potential goes far beyond that and does not stop at public and prestigious but applies to formal and private contexts as well. The round Table Y8 is particularly suitable for a reception desk in galleries, businesses and presentation environments.
The Modulor Y8 table consists of legs made from massive and clear varnished ash and a round linoleum table top made of either birch multiplex or MDF. The table top has a special, 25° beveled edge, also referred to as a chamfer. The steel components of the frame are painted black and build the robust base together with the solid wood legs.
Modulor table Y8 with effective table frame
The special appeal of the table lies in the construction of its frame. The rails do not follow the contour of the tabletop. Instead they are offset toward the middle. This creates the illusion that the table top is floating in place. The slender, square and slightly slanted (10°) table legs support the lightness and finesse of this effective overall construction. Only from far away or by looking under the tabletop is the thoughtful and effective interaction between table top and legs revealed.
The clever base: Cross coupling
Connectors in the shape of a cross contribute to the floating table top effect. The connectors form the center of the table. The four legs can be attached to it. The lengthwise play of 5 cm can be used to vary the distance between the legs and table top as desired. The table legs themselves have integrated height adjusters that ensure. the table is firmly on the ground. The Y8's high secondary stability comes from the screw fitting of the frame and top.
Timeless design: Ash frame and beveled linoleum table top
The minimalistic design of the Y-table doesn't just stem from its pared down and clever styling. Largely responsible for the elegant appearance is the high quality linoleum table top in gray or anthracite and the ash frame. The variation with multiplex core and linoleum surface in smoke gray provide a bright and warm overall impression. On the other hand, the MDF core with anthracite linoleum surface provides an exciting contrast to the light-colored ash frame. Both table varieties have 25° beveled edges that support the floating effect of the table frame. The stable and robust table appears to be feather light.
