The patented self-stabilising folding mechanism lies at the heart of mAx. When folding out the T-shaped leg frame the integrated brace pops out of the stand profile and locks the table frame at an angle of 90° to the table top. The clever part is that the connection becomes increasingly stronger the higher the brace moves and the more the table is moved. When the table is set up a safety catch is automatically activated to prevent the table from unintentionally being folded up while in use. To fold it up the table is placed on its side or turned upside down. This releases the safety catch and the brace can be pressed back with one hand into the stand profile, the frame folded up and locked in place. Learn more: https://www.wilkhahn.com/en......
Wilkhahn has devoted decades to developing office chairs that encourage our natural desire to keep our bodies moving and healthy. Chairs that are exceptional for their ease of use and superb design.
Leading experts in health and sports science now confirm that traditional ergonomics stipulating correct and incorrect sitting postures lead up a blind alley. In fact experts are calling for a pro-active seating concept that offers our bodies all the freedom of movement they are capable of. Our bodies know what is right for them - they just need a chance to prove it. The credo for healthy seating is to inspire but not tire.
After five years' development, ON sets a new milestone. ON is a fluid combination of natural, three-dimensional movement and relaxation that rouses both mind and body
Wilkhahn -- international success driven by consistency and continuity
Unlike virtually any other manufacturer in the furniture industry, Wilkhahn stands worldwide for design made in Germany. It offers high-quality office and conference furniture which are benchmarks for the entire industry. Some 60 years ago, the company made better utility value, long-lasting design and durability its goals. Milestones like classic office chair FS-Line (1980), Confair folding table (1994), office chair Modus (1994) or skid-base chair Aline (2004) have shaped the way offices have evolved. The latest examples of pioneering innovations are the multi-purpose chair Chassis, or three-dimensional ON which leading experts currently consider the world's best office chair.
Wilkhahn also sets new standards in terms of its socio-ecological approach.

In addition to a number of international accolades, office chair ON has also received the Federal Ecodesign Award.
