Walter Knoll, 2010

Tadeo exudes an archaic stability, sovereignty and peace, which is only broken by the vexing thinness of the aluminum supporting plates. Without any visible evidence that this is an extending table, it is possible to enlarge the table in no time.

A specially developed mechanism allows the hitherto invisible extra leaf to be revealed through a very simple lifting and folding motion. In addition to the model with anodized aluminum side framework, Tadeo is also available in a variant with solid wood feet.
