Hans Dining Table

This table, created by Antonio Citterio in 2009, features an opening system that allows the central element to be drawn out quickly—a thick crystel top is available in white or gray. There are trestle-shaped legs, which are tapered.



The undersized J.J. was created to complement Citterio’s oversize Arne sofas. Steel rods support a stained oak frame, between which a series of crisscrossed seatbelt-like bands make up the seat, which is covered in a leather cushion.
