200 x 100 cm and a max thickness of 41 mm for the 75cm TIPTOE leg.
160 x 100 cm and a max thickness of 45 mm for the 40cm TIPTOE leg.
For the 75cm leg, we recommend that you use table tops with a thickness comprised between 30mm and 38mm.
What is the maximum possible weight on 4 TIPTOE legs (including the table top)?
The maximum weight is 90kg for the 75cm leg et 160kg for the 40cm leg.
Above these thresholds, we recommend to add more legs to your tables.
What precautions should I take with a glass table top?
Glass is a very specific type of material (it is fragile and can break easily). As a result, you should not use a glass table top with our table legs.

What are the shipping costs?
MAY I USE MY TIPTOE LEGS OUTSIDE?
We have manufactured a series of legs specifically designed for outdoor use (they are part of our primavera lookbook). The outdoor leg has a special coating that makes it ultra-resistant to outdoor conditions (anti-UV, anti-corrosion 100% polyesther paint).
In addition, our indoor leg may be used outside as long as it is protected from rough outdoor conditions. A covered balcony is well suited for instance.
ARE YOUR TABLES STABLE?
Yes, our tables are as stable as traditional tables.
Our products have been through various stages of testing with engineers in order to ensure optimal stability. Our tables are used by prestigious partners such as Paris-based retail instiution Le Bon Marché, French crystal-manufacturer Baccarat or Paris Museum of Modern Art “Centre Pompidou”.
Please see below our installation guidelines (it’s very easy):
- On each leg, make sure that the square piece is well mounted on the clamping screw then position the legs on your table top.
- First, tighten the screw with your hands until it applies quite a strong pressure on the table top.
- Then, finish tightening the screw with the Allen key including in your box. The key goes into a small hole at the bottom of the clamping screw.
We recommend that you use table tops with a minimum thickness of 20mm for 40cm legs and with a thickness comprised between 32mm to 42mm for table tops mounted on 75cm legs.
We do not recommend the usage of glass or marble table tops because they are fragile and brittle.
