tema is a wooden dining table that can be extended by 100 cm. Insertion panels located under the surface and the innovative, very slim 2soft extension mechanism make this simple and intuitive. In a single motion, both halves of the tabletop slide apart simultaneously and the insertion panels automatically swing up in a gently cushioned movement. The advantage of this system is that the bench seats can remain in place when the dining table is extended or contracted, as the frame itself does not move in this process.

Statement by the Jury

The carefully thought-out design acquires merit for its innovative use of technology which makes the extendable dining table tema simple and intuitive to handle.
