Beauty, efficiency and stability – crossed with maximum flexibility. The elegant X-shaped base devotedly carries the slim, almost sensuous top. A table that is so airy that it liberates the room instead of dominating it. If the room is suddenly to be used for a different purpose, Conference-X is a quick change artist, easy to convert and dismantle in seconds – without any special knowledge, without tools.
From a technical point of view, Conference-X is a table system. Today an individual workplace, tomorrow a bench for a brainstorming session, the day after a series of tables for a seminar, always usable as a flexible conference. And it is precisely this flexibility that makes Conference-X a modern management table for start-ups, fin-techs and agencies. Scalable and adaptable: a table which grows with the ideas of the people sitting round it.
From a design point of view, Conference-X is the perfect agility table. Its shape and function as flexible as the young economy.
Working worlds are becoming more diverse, rooms more variable in use. The new elongated X base enables conference tables up to 1.40 meters wide. People can sit opposite each other and work together at one and the same table – with or without a computer. If a new situation arises, the system can be dismantled or converted in a flash.
Beauty and stability made of solid aluminum. The slimline X carries tops up to one meter wide. The new, elongated X can shoulder areas up to 1.40 m wide.
Conference-X is also a perfect individual working place. The airy X-shaped legs lend an air of lightness. The table is stable and provides plenty of legroom.
The design story
Rooms are becoming more variable in use. What does a table that satisfies a whole range of different demands look like – from the individual workplace to an international symposium? That combines beauty and multifunctionality? That can be converted in a flash? Bearing these questions in mind, designers and construction engineers came up with the high-grade Conference-X system. The pivotal piece is an X-shaped base made of solid aluminum – elegant, lightweight with a high load-bearing capacity. People have plenty of legroom and the table top is stable. The newly created connecting mechanism can be locked and released in a flash.
Now the X has a big brother: an elongated X that can shoulder working spaces up to 1.40 meters wide. People can sit opposite each other and work together at one and the same table – with or without a computer. If a new task crops up, the system can be converted in a flash. Conference-X is the flexible table system for flexible companies. A construction which combines agility with stability.

"The secret is the X: a leg made of 60 individual parts with a powerful spring lock. Could withstand earthquakes – the more you rock the table, the firmer the base is locked."
