E8 table by Mathias Hahn
London designer Mathias Hahn of Okay Studio has designed a wooden table where all surfaces except the top are coated in yellow lacquer.
Called E8, the table is long and narrow so that items used for working at the table can be pushed aside at meal times.
Long overhangs at both ends allow it to seat twelve people.

Here's some more information from Hahn:
The E8 table is based on an observation of an impromptu composed piece of post war time furniture that ended up as a dining table.
The long and narrow format allows it to be used as an every-day work and kitchen table, where temporary items such as laptops or paperwork can easily sidestep during meal times.
With its overhangs it serves as a twelve person dining table.
