From the forest to the dining room.
The most striking feature of the echt.zeit table is its authentically organic-looking table top. It is made from two lengths of untreated wood that were cut from the tree trunk as a single piece. The brushed surface truly brings the natural features of the wood to the fore. The result is a distinctively individual table that is completely unique. Skilled craftsmanship is fundamental to the echt.zeit table: from choosing the right piece of wood, to the traditional joining methods that are ideal for living wood and allow easy assembly and disassembly when needed. After all, you will want to take such a one-of-a-kind piece with you everywhere. No matter how often you move your home.
Enjoyable moments. Shared experiences.
A sense of security, warmth and the value of shared moments: the echt.zeit table embodies authenticity and originality. It invites us to rediscover the pleasure of real encounters and real conversations. Consciously enjoying time together in everyday or special moments of life – there is enough space for this around the echt.zeit table, which can be extended up to four metres.
A love for the detail.
The "leaf" from the TEAM 7 logo locks the two parts of the table top firmly together, and is yet another example of our perfectionist detailing. The neat steel panel supports made of bronzed steel are modestly set back and their structural design ensures maximum stability. A practical accessory is the wooden trivet. Its shape is reminiscent of a plus sign and it certainly offers a plus in comfort: developed specially for the echt.zeit table, it can be moved along the centre joint - without slipping sideways.
REAL, LASTING BEAUTY.
The waney edges made from natural wood as well as the brushed oil surface of the table top accentuate the unique physicality of the solid wood. When you regularly treat the echt.zeit table with pure natural oil, you will continue to be stunned by its natural beauty even after many years, just like on the first day! With the right know-how, you can even remove those traces of wear that come with many years of use. Take a look for yourself!

A real piece of craftsmanship.
Only certain tree trunks can be used for the "fillet pieces" needed to create one of these tables. The knowledge and experience of the traditional craftsman therefore play a decisive role in the choice of wood. With great care and precision, the two pieces are combined to make a single sturdy table top, using a tongue and groove joint. For wood, as a breathing material, this handcrafted joint is ideal because it allows for natural expansion and shrinkage. The centre joint is locked together with the TEAM 7 "leaf" made of bronzed steel. This functions as a fastening system on the underside, and in conjunction with the wood joints ensures that the two pieces are firmly secured to form a strong table top. Yet they are also extremely easy to remove when the table needs to be dismantled for transport.
The best of both worlds.
We combine the two things that make our work with solid wood even better: the latest technology and traditional Austrian craftsmanship.
Solid wood is healthy. But it’s addictive.
Be inspired by our interior designs and find out how TEAM 7 furniture can make all of your rooms more beautiful and natural.
Good design is not just valuable, it’s also full of values.
TEAM 7 stands for first-class design with a clear philosophy. Design with a timeless quality that places a special emphasis on nature, instead of trying to restrain or subdue it.
"Design for me encompasses more than the furniture itself. Beyond the purely formal design, I envision the maximum functionality as well as ist effect in the spatial context."
The most ingenious thing about wood: easy maintenance.
Wood naturally features unique self-cleaning properties. As a result only minimal effort is required on your part to keep your TEAM 7 furniture looking just as good in decades to come as it does today.
We don’t just take on orders. We also take on responsibility.
We think that our company should accept responsibility for its decisions. That’s why we stand 100% behind ours. Producing perfect solid wood for our customer is important to us – but the entire product process is also an integral part of this for us. That’s why we treat our partners, our employees and nature as they deserve to be treated: fairly.
We love wood.
We love what we do – as can be seen in every piece of finished furniture. This is because innovation and a pioneering spirit are our innermost aspirations. We know everything about our forests and about wood as a material. We treat wood with respect in the production of our furniture, combining innovative technology with traditional craftsmanship.
