A strong grasp of form and composition has given life to a collection of tables characterised by great flexibility in terms of shape, size and range of uses. The project derives from the idea of creating a broad and differentiated range of designs. The legs in die-cast aluminium are fixed both to a central base and to the table top forming a solid structure. The number of legs may vary as a function of the dimensions of the top, available in different shapes and finishes.
The biplane collection has many variants, just perfect for any environment. The square table, the round ones with tops in different diameters, the rectangular one and the little tables are available with tops in oak veneer or in MDF with white polyurethane lacquer.
The elegant elliptical versions complete the biplane collection: the 210x125 cm table which is perfect for dining room, the one with 330x130 cm top is ideals for office premises and meeting rooms and the little table with oval top 150x55 cm, height 39 cm is ideal for dining rooms. All the tops of these versions are available only in MDF with enameled polyurethane white finish, which is scratch resistance.
Now biplane includes a new version, 110 cm high. Contemporary office and meeting room models often prefer high tables that enable the use of stools and therefore a more dynamic use of tables, compared to standard models, as you can work by leaning against the table top as well as sitting on a high chair. These characteristics make biplane the ideal choice for dynamic working environments, where meetings and group work sessions take place.
Alberto Meda has designed a totally refurbished leg, sturdier and taller than in the previous 72 cm version of biplane, and featuring a V shaped cross-section that minimises the use of aluminium, while retaining high structural strength. The outcome is a table with a very slender profile and visually very light.
Suitable for use in a meeting room, it also lends itself to being used as a reception desk.
The V shaped cross-section of the leg provides a passage for the power cables leading up to the tabletop.
The collection has also been enriched with four tops, in white lacquered mdf, characterised by bevelled corners, which may be used with 110 cm high legs: the square top comes in two sizes, 120x120 and 140x140 cm, and the rectangular top is provided in 205x105 or 240x105 cm.
Perfect for any environment, the new biplane tables reflect Alias’ incessant drive to develop solutions that will meet each and every need.
