The ostensibly minimalist design of Moormann's Klopstock table is spectacularly deceptive: a click snap system allows twelve different options for arranging the table legs - and therefore allowing for optimal adaptation for chair arrangement and table height. Down to earth and refined at the same time Daniel Kern's 2013 design for the manufacturer Nils Holger Moormann, is produced in wood sourced from sustainable European forests.

Design Story

Moormann's Klopstock as a dining table with outwardly directed legs....


Untreated materials, resource-saving production processes and regional production are at the heart of the Nils Holger Moormann philosophy. As ably demonstrated by Klopstock, Moormann's gymnast in terms of table function. Produced from pine and ash sourced from sustainable, FSC certificated, European forests the Klopstock table tops are available in three different sizes. The table legs meanwhile are crafted from untreated ash wood. The majority of components for Moormann products are sourced from small and medium-sized businesses in the immediate vicinity of the company headquarters in Aschau im Chiemgau; thus Moormann uses existing structures, support the region and save valuable resources. New products for the Moormann collection are generally developed in close collaboration with both the designers and the suppliers; consequently, practical and resource saving production process can be developed alongside the development of prototypes.

Under the Klopstock table top: The click snap system allows the locking of the legs in different positions.

The Design

Those who are quickly overtaxed by too many possibilities should best avoid the Moormann table Klopstock: for the apparent minimalistic design conceals unsuspecting possibilities - to be precise 12! Based on a floating structure Nils Holger Moormann's Klopstock table features a refined click snap system allowing the possibility to attach the legs in 12 different symmetric (and some asymmetric) positions. As such the table adapts readily to the requirements of differing situations; and whether as a table or desk, Klopstock maintains its stoic yet unpretentious style. Designed by Daniel Kern the Klopstock dining table and/or Klopstock desk is a delightfully simple wooden table with a table top made of melamine resin, which combines typical Moormann style comfort and practicality.

... or as a desk with vertically mounted legs.


Klopstock designer Daniel Kern studied visual communication and industrial design in Hamburg, graduating with honours in 2011. Following his graduation Daniel was mainly active as an exhibition designer - assisting, for example with the 2008 Vitra Design Museum exhibition "Antibodies" - before he became part of the Nils Holger Moormann design team. Honoured with various awards, including the Design Award of the Leinemann Stiftung für Bildung und Kunst und das Karl H. Ditz annual scholarship for particularly gifted students. In 2013 and 2014 the German Council nominated Daniel Kern for their Newcomer of the Year Award.

Daniel Kern - designer of the Klopstock table.


Founded in 1982 Nils Holger Moormann is idyllically situated in the Bavarian village of Aschau im Chiemgau. There the company's 20 strong team develop the Moormann furniture collection from the initial planning through to production and maintain their network with internationally active designers and regional companies. From the very beginning Moormann have placed a strong focus on co-operations with young designers, and often on taking a chance with unconventional designs. A concept which has proved very successful and which can also be perfectly experienced in the company's guesthouse berge: a historic Grade II Listed inn which combines the rustic flair of the Alps with the modern charm of Moormann furniture. Including of course Klopstock. The sympathetic guesthouse in Aschau is also, thanks to its reliance on geothermal energy, green power, natural materials and organic products, classified in the ranks of European Bio guesthouses.
