Design by Edward Barber & Jay Osgerby, 2011.
Map is a universal table, with universal good looks and a growing resume of practical applications. Its discreet, functional design language is suited to many interior spaces. As an elegant individual table, Map is well suited to a home office or workspace. Map tables may also be combined to form islands or fixed together into rows for use in conference or meeting spaces. These configurations can easily be taken apart and recombined as needed.
Map's vertical table legs are made of tubular steel and fastened to the table top using a fan-shaped, die-cast plate. This seemingly simple technical solution not only serves to reinforce the table top, but with its integrated numbering system, it also enables a range of leg positions. Switching out a few screws enables tables to be assembled in a range of different configurations: fitted flush together or next to each other, stacked or linked to form rows. A plastic glide that can be adjusted without the use of tools ensures that the table tops always remain level.
The Map Table is offered with a Melamine/ABS, Light Oak Veneer or Dark Oak Veneer table top. Select your table top, then select powder-coat or Chrome base.
All assembly materials included.
Material(s): Melamine or oak veneer, metal
Dimensions: 29.25" H x 59" W x 29.5" D
Vitra has manufactured furniture designs by Charles & Ray Eames and George Nelson since 1957. Building on this foundation, Vitra has developed a wide range of furnishings for the office, for the home and for public spaces in collaboration with progressive designers. Yet Vitra is more than just a design-oriented manufacturing company. The name also stands for the Vitra Design Museum, for a collection of modern furniture and its accompanying archive, for workshops and publications on topics of design, and for an architectural concept that unites buildings by Frank Gehry, Nicholas Grimshaw, Zaha Hadid, Tadao Ando, Alvaro Siza, Herzog & de Meuron and SANAA at the Vitra Headquarters in Birsfelden (Switzerland) and on the Vitra Campus in Weil am Rhein (Germany).
Product longevity is central to Vitra's contribution to sustainable development; short-lived styling is avoided at all costs. This can be seen most clearly in the classical pieces of furniture that have been used for decades, had several owners and have then even ended up as a part of a collection. For Vitra, the manufacture of sustainable products means intense pre-production development, where the highest-grade materials are selected and tests are carried out that simulate 15 years of use. In order to enforce and monitor sustainable development in all business activities of the company, a work group was formed in 1986 by the name of 'Vitra and the Environment'. Because of this, Vitra can proudly claim that it has been dedicated to sustainability for nearly a quarter of a century.View other products from Vitra
