Extempore high table

Part of the Extempore collections

High and dry

This high table is compact, yet tall enough for socializing and spacious enough to work at while standing up. If you prefer to sit, combine it with our high benches. Made from durable, sustainably-sourced Jatoba hardwood, Extempore fits perfectly in any workplace, educational institution or hospitality setting.

Jatoba wood has exceptional qualities. The durability and stability is extremely high for long, thin slats, which was a key design issue for the whole Extempore range. After intensive collaboration with several authorities such as universities and nature & wild life organizations, Jatoba hardwood came out as the most stable and sustainable species that is widely available.

Choose wisely
At first, Jatoba wood might give off its red color every time it comes into contact with water. Just like other types of wood, Jatoba will gradually become rougher and start to turn grey as a consequence of exposure to the sun and rain. Small cracks and crevices can also appear as part of this process. We strongly advise everyone to treat the furniture with our Wood Protector.

Anodized aluminium

Anodized aluminium

Anodizing is a process which increases the thickness of the natural oxide layer on the surface of the aluminium. This layer protects the aluminium from corrosion. We have chosen not to give the aluminium any further treatment, as this would not lengthen its lifespan and would also be very bad for the environment.

Choose wisely
Easy to clean with lukewarm water and a mild detergent.
