It is a project born from a careful analysis of final use together with an expert construction and development of forms.
Paso Doble, designed by Gebrüder Thonet Vienna R & D is a complete and flexible programme with five extendabìe tables, in a variety of sizes, that respond to the many needs of the contemporary home where space is limited and the living area and kitchen often blend into a single environment.

Tango – designed by Giulio lacchetti – is forms that transmit a sensation of solid essentiality. The design inspiration originates from the observation of the trabeated system used in viaducts: two columns holding up a beam that, when extended beyond the two supports, ends in two cantilever sections. Tango's extension system is simple and ingenious.
Moreover there is Twiggy designed by Gebrüder Thonet Vienna R & D.
