Coalesse introduces a table collection that supports social connection and creative collaboration
Coalesse, the leader in bringing new life to work, introduced (at NeoCon) fouronefive_CO, a collection of tables designed in response to the growing need for solutions that support more social and collaborative settings in the workplace. Designed by the Coalesse Design Studio, fouronefive_CO is a platform that will allow designers to participate in the design process and modify as needed for various environments.
The fouronefive_CO collection addresses the need for comfort and customization with a multitude of sizes, shapes and tabletop material selections. The frame can span a large distance without interposing legs providing generous room for freedom of motion while delivering a lighter appearance. The leg design thoughtfully combines structural integrity and minimal proportions to accommodate different meeting locations.
In addition to flexibility, power and technology were key elements in the design process. fouronefive_CO provides power where people need it with support for today’s mobile devices and to ensure easy access for their connection. The collection delivers ample cable capacity and discrete wire management in the table trough and within the legs, allowing for invisible integration that maintains the desired aesthetic.
John Hamilton, director of Design at Coalesse, explains the inspiration for the collection: “When we started to design this table collection, we did extensive research into the needs of today’s workplace. We realized that consideration for issues like wellbeing and employee engagement sometime slips to a lower priority even though these issues have been shown to contribute to an organization’s overall performance. Fouronefive_CO captures key elements of modern craft which are becoming an antidote to uninspired workspaces by not only heightening functionality and aesthetics but also humanizing the workplace experience.”
Introduced at NeoCon 2015, the initial offering includes standard work-height tables (28.5”) in rectangular, boat, round and square shapes with laminate and veneer tops. It features painted and polished options for the table legs and leg ring detail. The frame was designed to support virtually any material providing freedom of design and personal expression. The versatility of this collection was specifically developed to infuse craft into today’s workplaces to help define space and express company culture.
