This table concept is based on a pared-down steel frame whose purpose is to secure the legs and support the top. A supporting structure similar to a backbone, allowing for an extremely stable and visually light composition.
By combining the three traditional materials of wood, glass and metal, Alfredo Häberli has put his name to ago table or Alias, a pioneering project whose impacting graphical signature reinterprets the great classics of Scandinavian design in a more contemporary key.
The unquestioned protagonist of this table is its technical structure which, as well as contributing to define the aesthetic content, also allows for considerable flexibility. Ago is presented in various sizes to meet both domestic and office requirements. The table legs are made from solid oak which come in various finishes: natural, dark stained or soloured stains finish. The legs attach to the white, black or silver painted steel structure.
In the total wood version, the top matches the wood finish of the legs or may be supplied in extra light clear glass or bronze/sapphire coloured glass to highlight the underlying structure. This is a well designed project with an innovative technological approach.
