With beautifully simple lines and practical accessories, the Hook Up collection by Toronto design firm MSDS Studio can accommodate all manner of meeting and work types. A universal rail connects tables together and can be fitted with privacy panels, letter trays, storage boxes, planters in different sizes, cupholders and power receptacles — all without the need for tools. The steel frame and legs are offered in nine standard colours (customizing is also an option), and three table heights are available.
Part of the mid-century-modern-inspired Punt collection, the Mitis table by Barcelona-based designer Mario Ruiz highlights the natural beauty of wood through its sculpted trestle-like legs, sophisticated detailing and substantial surface (a contrasting solid surface option is also available). The rectangular table comes in three heights and widths, making it a suitable addition for both private offices and larger boardrooms.
Bringing the functionality of scaffolding to the office, the Comma kit-of-parts system consists of six central elements: base and top frames, horizontal and diagonal beams, shelves and screens. The frame pieces can be snapped together in multiple ways — and multiple times — using the clever “claw” ends of the horizontal beams, no tools or hardware required. Assembled as solo desks or group huddles or even makerspaces, the agile tubular system can also be equipped with tabletops and electrification modules.
In a departure for wooden-furniture-maker Another Country, the Work Series Two table features a removable surface made from recycled yogurt containers: the 100 per cent recyclable material has a terrazzo-style look with glimmers of metal from the foil lids. Combined with circular eucalyptus wood legs, the table has a lovely tactile quality that can be further enhanced with cork and natural wool privacy panels.
For creative meetings and energetic collaborations, these four tables provide both support and style.
