Concave / Table


This table is a part of a family of tables.

As a part of this project an extensive research was conducted to establish the needs, requirements and desires of the users of these areas; the students, the professors and the librarians. Througout the research one thing was clear, the balance between privacy and the social interaction was key to design a space, that would be appreciated by the users. The modulation between privacy, calm and social interaction had to be solved.

While designing the tables, we took these thoughts in to consideration. The result is the “Concave” a study table in powder lacquered steel, and UV-laquered Oak wood.
