      Linoleum or melamine? Choose the right E2 table top

      The melamine tabletop as E2 tabletop

      The melamine table top is a plastic-coated wood fibre board with a circumferential edge made of wood or plastic. The wood fibre board in the core is a certified, pollutant-free chipboard. The plastic coating of the surface is the name-giving portion of this E2 table top, because it consists of the Duroplast melamine resin. Surely many people know melamine as tableware or switches. It was and is used for this purpose because of its properties, which also distinguish it as a surface for E2 table tops. It is hard and therefore quite scratch-resistant, resistant to moisture and light and insulates electrically.
      In addition to these properties, melamine table tops are very inexpensive to purchase due to the structure described above. Since they are also durable, they are an economically sensible choice as E2 table top without restriction.

      With our melamine table tops you can choose from two thicknesses (19 mm and 25 mm). As E2 table top we recommend the stronger version (25 mm), because E2 table frames do not have supporting frames, but the table top only rests on the four legs. If the thinner top is to be used as an E2 table top, we recommend installing table top supporters from a top length of 150 cm to prevent the top from sagging.

      Next, you can choose from the colours white, black and various shades of grey as well as wood-look decors. And you also have the choice of surface finish: smooth or pearled. A pearled E2 table top is even more resistant to signs of wear than a smooth one. First and foremost, however, the two surface types differ from each other visually and haptically.

      Good to know: Melamine table tops have two identical usable sides, so they can be turned over if necessary. However, we only guarantee a flawless surface for one side.

      The linoleum tabletop as E2 tabletop

      Linoleum is the material with the warm feel and the many beautiful colours in our table top assortment. In addition to the 21 colours, there are the numerous shapes that you can have made with your individual
      E2 tabletop
      Different corner radii and edge shapes are possible. You can also choose from three different table top cores. In total, over 1,000 variants of linoleum table tops are possible in this way, which you can order from us. And, of course, everything according to your personal specifications.

      Linoleum consists of natural raw materials such as linseed oil, jute, wood and limestone flour. It forms a pleasant table surface on which you can write and draw wonderfully.

      With us you can choose from three plate materials, which we offer with linoleum surface: A rod board with edging, a multiplex board and an MDF board (medium density fibreboard). The last two types show their materiality at the edge, so they do not have a covering edging.

      Because the MDF and multiplex boards have open edges, you can choose how the edges should look for both types of board: In addition to the classic straight (i.e. vertical) edge, we also offer an inclined edge, which is worked at an angle of 25° (seen from the horizontal). Due to the quite flat angle, an E2 table top with this edge appears much thinner.

      Important: The linoleum surface also covers the entire top of the table including the edge of the edge up to the outermost edge of the table when using rod tops (with edge banding). The linoleum is therefore not edged by the edge band. Because the linoleum is glued to the edging and remains visible from the side, it is also called a single edging instead of a edging. The linoleum has a small bevel at all edges.

      Choose the colour for your E2 tabletop

      Black E2 table tops

      black E2 tabletop looks elegant and is available as a melamine tabletop exclusively with the pearled surface from us. Compared to the black surface, our mostly lighter real wood edgings stand out quite clearly and thus create a framed impression. Only with a black ABS edging an E2 table top looks "like from one block". Linoleum table tops are available in black but also in anthracite and other dark colours. Here the choice of colours is much more differentiated.

      White E2 table tops

      A white table top lies on most E2 table racks. It is the classic melamine tabletop with a pearled surface. A large bright surface is friendly in the room and creates a good working atmosphere. We offer linoleum table tops in the light colours cream and light grey. We do not have a brilliant white in the colour selection of the linoleum table tops.

      More colors for
      your E2 table

      A large selection of 21 different colours is available for the linoleum table tops.
      The possibilities for melamine table tops are much clearer. The colours white, grey and black are available as well as wood-look decors.

      History of the E2 Table

      Where did the design of the E2 table come from and who invented it? What is an egg man's table? And why are there different suppliers today? Here we answer all questions about the history of the E2 table. It's all about the development of the design, the producer of the table frames and the trademark rights to the term Eiermann. We'll also tell you how and when Modulor got involved with the E2 table. 

      Have fun reading!

      Part 4: The trademark rights of the term Eiermann

      The E2 table frame comes from the successor metal workshop of the university workshop from Egon Eiermann's times. There a design (E2) of the originally welded table frame by Egon Eiermann, further developed by the workshop manager at that time Adam Wieland under the eyes of Egon Eiermann, is finally produced. Nevertheless, it should not be called Eiermann's frame.

      Why? The trademark rights to the term Eiermann were purchased in 1995 by a furniture manufacturer much further away from Egon Eiermann than Adam Wieland from Egon Eiermann's descendants: Richard Lampert. And now all legal possibilities are exhausted to restrict or prohibit the use of the name Eiermann in connection with table frames by competitors and their sales partners. We are also affected by this. In 2011, for example, we had to withdraw a not inconsiderable part of our last printed catalogue with 1,400 pages, which provided information about our entire product range, from circulation. We no longer have a printed catalogue, but our table frames are now described on the Internet. And so we continue to be confronted with warnings and processes on this subject, even though the table frame is now called "E2 table frame - known as Eiermann table". We think that the table frame has a direct relation to Egon Eiermann and do not want it to be dropped under the table (German idiom :) ). This remains a difficult and costly undertaking. The last trial at the Higher Regional Court (Kammergericht Berlin) ended in a defeat for Richard Lampert, but the appeal to the Federal Supreme Court against the decision not to admit an appeal was immediately lodged. To be continued ...

      ... but at least one thing is certain: Adam Wieland GmbH will continue to be based in Egon-Eiermann-Allee.

      Addendum: On 28.11.2019, the Federal Supreme Court rejected Richard Lamperts appeal against the non-admission of an appeal. The judgment of the Higher Regional Court Berlin is therefore final. We may therefore - now confirmed by the highest court - continue to describe our E2 tables as "known as Eiermanntisch".
