Stackable solutions for space saving design

When a space has to serve multiple uses, the furniture needs to be considered but variable. And Wilkhahn has the answers.

  • The Aula chairs, from Wilkhahn

Whether it’s a conference, a meeting, a breakout brainstorming session, or any other number of modern uses we need in contemporary office life – furniture is important. The design experts at Wilkhahn know this, which is where the Aula chair and mAx table comes in.


When creating the 16-colour Aula multipurpose chair, the designers sought to take the material of plastic to a whole new aesthetic and functional level. The precise lines and manner in which the leg frame, armrests and seat shell fuse with the rest of the structure suggest a natural, organic sculpture of the stackable chair.

Not just an easily moveable and storage-friendly solution to multi-use design spaces, the form, elasticity and ergonomic design of the seat shell offer excellent support and comfort.


Folding table systems are exceptionally flexible ways of furnishing multipurpose spaces. mAx’s appealing look and sophisticated construction set new standards in this space. The superbly designed folding tables can be stowed away compactly and require just one hand to set them up.

Plus, the tables are self-stabilising and come with integrated linkage options – all in a piece of furniture that would suit the style of any contemporary workplace.

The material and craftsmanship of the stylish T-shaped foot sections ensure tables are sturdy and durable. The various table foot sizes allow lots of different table shapes and depths for all kinds of uses – from tables placed in loosely arranged groups to linear rows of tables to open-centred or closed conference table systems.


Whether destined for meeting rooms, versatile conference and seminar centres, project- and group-work areas, a co-working space or even versatile restaurant and café-zones – with Aula and mAx, Wilkhahn has got you covered.
