The height-adjustable Hack table system by Konstantin Grcic counters traditional office desks with an innovative functional and aesthetic approach that satisfies the demands of today's startups and other young, dynamic companies: Hack can be folded up into a flat 'box' in just a few simple steps, transported and stored in a space-saving manner.
Users can configure Hack as a standing or sitting desk or as a sofa, creating niches for work, meetings or relaxation.
Table top and wall elements: OSB (oriented strand board), 15 mm thick, three-layered, flat-pressed panel made from micro veneers in accordance with DIN EN 300. Safety: all edges and corners are rounded. Emission levels are lower than the legally permissible (non hazardous) E1 standard.
Frame: welded construction made of square steel tubing, powder-coated finish in deep black.
Legs: powder-coated aluminium, finish in deep black, fitted with injection-moulded plastic glides for adaptation to uneven flooring (range 0-10 mm).
Table height 700-1180 mm, continuous range, power-assisted release lever.
Note: for safety reasons, the force required to operate the adjustment mechanism exceeds 100 Newtons.
Ordering: if an electrification option is selected, a cable basket will automatically be added to the configuration. Table-top electrification is only possible in combination with under-table electrification.
