Nomos Desk

The frame of the Nomos table is conceived as a rigid, zoomorphic skeleton. The table can be adapted to satisfy wide range of needs, at home and in the office.

A design which changed our way of thinking about the object that is the table forever. Nomos is the pioneer of all shared structure systems and a recognised icon of industrial design.

The Nomos Table differs from the other components of the Nomos System for the size of its tubular frame (1″ instead of 1 1/4″), for the angled shape of its base and for the dedicated castings that support the top instead of the basic substructures of the System. The top rests on suckers in the glass version and is screwed to the aluminium supports in wood top versions. The Nomos table can be assembled in two heights, 28 1/3″ or 25 2/3″, simply by including or excluding spacers between the top and the supports.
