Tisch Eins, the design table made from Koskisen plywood alone.
This table, a result of the combination of craftsmanship and design, comes from the German company Thobeck which was founded in 2013 by Thomas Beck and Georg Ackermann GmbH. The table is a great example of how Koskisen decorative plywood, KoskiDecor Transparent, KoskiDecor Eco Transparent and KoskiDecor Laminate, can be used in the design industry.
I chose Koskisen birch plywood for the simple reason that they have high quality plywood, on which we can rely without doubts.
Their decision to collaborate came after Thomas Beck wrote an article about his study project -lightweight furniture design- and illustrated his thoughts with a series of lightweight stackable furniture. This led them to develop the first serial production item and to sell it via the company website. The product, Tisch Eins, received a lot of positive reviews and soon started to be sold via different channels.
“The table is simply plugged together; the design is a very minimalistic and technologic design”, Thomas states. “Also, the product requires no screws, no glue and no tools to be assembled. Finnish birch plywood is the only material used.”
Regarding the use of Koskisen Plywood, Thomas emphasises the quality and the reliability:
“I chose Koskisen birch plywood for the simple reason that they have high quality plywood, on which we can rely without doubts. Our furniture concept needs to be manufactured with high quality plywood and we need to be sure that there are no defects within the board because we bend the leg parts and fix it tensioned.”
