mi does not intrude and yet has a great effect. Its table is covered by precious veneer, rotary-cut in one piece from the trunk. This rotary-cut veneer has an all-over marking; dark stains make it all the more prominent. The absence of joints or other distractions focuses all the attention on the harmony of this monolithic table. Refined purism necessitating a very precise manufacturing process. mi's 25mm table top is specially produced from beech plywood to meet the high expectations on the top's evenness without using inserts. The top is mounted with traversed weights and supports like a dome. To maintain the architectural appeal, Beat Waeber and Daniel Dickenmann drew the legs with a slightly conical shape, making them look straight. The legs are diligently joined to the table using spindles. This makes it a good choice not only for residential spaces but also for commercial and office areas.
