The “Panther” table is a Limited Edition Dining Table of 13 (+2 artist proofs)
Manufactured in Germany using Carbon Fiber, Kevlar and Titanium.
Designed by Maximilian Eicke for his own company Max ID NY, a high end furniture design company based in Sag Harbor, NY (launched in 2009)
Maximilian Eicke is 23yrs old, Born in Dusseldorf, Germany.
Named Panther because it evokes an animalistic characteristic, It was designed to test the possibilities of the designer and his manufacturer as well as to push the envelope of what is considered a conventional table design regarding the orientation and design of its legs. The goal was also to design a table that not only was light due to its material choices, but in-fact looked light as well.
The construction of the table uses a combination of unidirectional carbon fiber and 2×2 carbon fiber twill, kevlar honeycomb core and titanium pieces at all of the connection points of legs.
The table is fully functional and comfortably seats 6 people. Can easily support the weight of a person standing on it.
The Design packs away into a custom Suitcase for easy storage and safe transport. This process as well as well as the stability when a person stands on top of the table can be seen in the following video: https://vimeo.com/maxidny/panther
Total Assembly Time by a single person 2.5 minutes.
