A dining table model H-356, designed by Jindřich Halabala in the 1940s. Halabala worked at the Brno headquarters of UP Závody, where he held the position of chief architect and head of the studio from 1930. Halabala was originally a joiner and later studied at the Academy of Arts, Architecture, and Design in Prague under the guidance of Professor Pavel Janák. It was probably there that his work acquired its characteristic functionalist purity of form.
The dining table is made of two sections which slide outward so that a board can be inserted between them to expand the table. When expanded, it has a length of 178 cm. The table stands on two broad oval-shaped legs set in a rectangular metal base with hammered ornamentation. The tabletop has a walnut veneer, which is stained in a dark shade and lacquered. The entire table has been completely renovated in our workshop.
