EONA – Everything Old is New Again

Everything Old is New Again (EONA) is a modular table system manufactured from post consumer recycled materials.

EONA – Everything Old is New Again


May 10th, 2011

Designed by Matthew Cramsie, EONA’s outstanding environmental credentials, combined with its sleek and timeless design, make EONA ideal for conference and boardroom tables.

EONA promotes flexibility and diversity with legs that can be positioned at narrow or wide stances for small or large tables. Adjustment can be made both during and after installation, allowing the table frame to be reused for different future applications.


EONA has been designed for 100% disassembly ready for recycling. During the design process, Thinking Ergonomix commissioned a Life Cycle Assessment to ensure the product design met their high environmental expectations.

This information was used to determine the amount of greenhouse gases emitted from the manufacture of the table frame from cradle to cradle. In alignment with sustainability practices, Thinking Ergonomix offsets carbon dioxide through a certified carbon-offsetting program.


EONA uses 100% post consumer recycled aluminium for legs and leg support inserts, post consumer recycled steel for outer leg supports, rails and adjustable glides (steel material is generally produced with a minimum of 10% post consumer content, however our suppliers state that for EONA this figure is closer to 40%) and recyclable polypropylene.

EONA can accommodate tables and desks with a variety of top depths and to an infinite length. Minimum table depth is 800mm and maximum depth is 1600mm.
