Interior High Notes: Residential wonders in Atlanta, Whistler, Milan and more in Azure's September 2019 issue!

Torre by HBF, NeoCon 2019

The free-range workspace culture is still going strong, but there is still a need for designated meeting zones equipped with tables that can handle a crowd. Debuting at NeoCon last week, these conference-style tables by Versteel, Coalesse, HBF and more offer superb functionality to offices as well as commercial and hospitality environments.

MoreThanFive by Coalesse
Coalesse, MoreThanFive, NeoCon 2019

Following their successful collaboration on the ultra-lightweight carbon fibre LessThanFive chair, Coalesse and British industrial designer Michael Young this year previewed its complementary yet polar opposite MoreThanFive table. Still an exploration into materials, the focus this time around was on something considerably more substantial – cast iron.   

Coalesse, MoreThanFive, NeoCon 2019

Aimed at providing a stable foundation for teams to work, meet and socialize at, MoreThanFive features a solid cast-iron base – a material known for its durability and recyclability – which can be clear-coated or painted in two metal-look finishes, and frosted-glass tabletop that puts the mix of materials on full display. The work-height table is offered in round, square or rectangular formats in a range of sizes. LessThanFive was given an update this year as well, with the introduction of 11 fresh new paint finishes. coalesse.com

Thea by Versteel

Tables with integrated power sources are commonplace these days, but not many do it as beautifully as Thea does. Italian designer Roberto Lucci has elevated the basic table with the addition of four ultra-slender hairpin legs that wrap around as many circular end caps, each containing two USB ports to provide multiple power sources to every corner. Cable management is sleekly contained within a tubular understructure, furthering the minimalist design.

Array by Senator

For spaces that need to conform and perform for a variety of scenarios, the Array table system by Senator delivers ultimate adaptability. Built around a gas-powered flip-top surface in six different shapes, the series includes two base styles – one single-sided, one two-sided – both mounted on sturdy castors to make moving them around a cinch.

Configurations possibilities are vast, with the different shapes able to form large crescents, hexagons, linear arrangements and more. Adding to the versatility are four fixed-top formats (trapezoid, crescent, polygon and half-round), integrated power connectivity and cable management systems that can be accessed from the rear, top or sides. Multiple finish options are available for the tabletops, including wood-look and laminates.  thesenatorgroup.com

Torre by HBF

Inspired by the shape of a cake platter and named after the Italian word for tower, Torre’s most commanding element is without a doubt its hefty columnar base. While the pillars could have been overwhelming, the structures taper as they rise to give an overall impression of visual lightness. Seemingly held slightly aloft, the table’s bullnose solid ash surface has a slender profile, which contributes to the airy effect.

Power is fed from the floor through the conical bases to efficiently corral cords and keep clutter out of sight, and the surface-integrated outlets can be positioned in various spots on the round and rectangular versions. Torre’s base can be ash- or Corian-veneer and the table is available in multiple sizes.  hbf.com
