Platz Table

c. 2012

for e15

When looking at the Platz table designed by Jörg Schell­mann, the first thing one notices is the seem­ingly enig­matic diag­o­nal that bisects the space on the table’s under­side. The Platz table features a frame mortised with visible solid wood dowel construc­tion in 2” thick north­ern Euro­pean oak in oiled or white pigmented wax finish. The table is avail­able in seven stan­dard recti­lin­ear sizes – we have noted three of the most popular sizes as options here – each priced in the oiled finish. Platz is also avail­able in two inno­v­a­tive versions that are taller than stan­dard table height, which permits the table’s use with stools of varying heights rather than chairs – the taller versions are avail­able in a sepa­rate listing. Sitz – a bench employ­ing both a similar and syner­gis­tic aesthetic that comple­ments Platz – was devel­oped by Schell­mann and is simi­larly avail­able sepa­rately. To review addi­tional finishes and options and their asso­ci­ated pricing, please call us at 800.886.0867.
