Thinner is a simple and thin table designed by Swedish designer Tobias Berneth for Carl Andersson & Soner. The table with its slender, elegant lines is reminiscent of an aeroplane wing, a construction that ensures good stability. Thinner is ideal for use in the living room, lobby, entrance hall, conference room or dining room, and also makes a practical desk, both in the office and at home.
The table comes in a white laminate finish or ash in a choice of four standard stains (black, white, brown and red brown). In designer’s words, “Thinner should create the illusion of a thin, weightless surface. The functional part of a table is its surface. Thinner is just a surface. It is the result of numerous prototypes, calculations and material tests to manage 6mm material thickness. To gain the required stability the table was constructed like the wing of an aeroplane.” Take a look at the pictures.
