Design Team: Cesaroni Design & Nucraft Furniture Company

Nucraft collaborated with Cesaroni Design on a table system design with reconfiguration capability, transforming from a boardroom table to a conference room U-shape or training room rows.

Form and function drove the overall aesthetic design of this new product. The design team paid close attention to proportion and reconfiguration. This table design is reduced down to its basic elements - a tabletop and two panel bases. The enclosed large proportioned bases give the feel of performance and stability, which is a critical design element for the executive conference room application.

The product designers used metal accents to provide durability and create a visual termination to the length of the panel from top to bottom. The industrial design keeps all detailing clean and crisp to retain a timeless look. 

The innovative design solution breaks up larger proportions into light and elegant mobile objects. The design team utilized omni-directional ball casters within the folding panel bases to eliminate visual clutter.

A unique ratcheting screw mechanism, similar to a socket wrench, achieves the tightness and flushness of the tabletops. The solid connection between tabletops enables the end leg panels to be pivoted inward, maximizing the number of people that can be seated around the table.

Wire management gaps are at the tops of all table bases and above modesty panels to permit the wires to pass from table to table. A plug strip is mounted to the back of modesty panels to provide the user with convenient power access.

The new product design was recognized with a Best of NeoCon Gold Award and a Good Design award from The Chicago Athenaeum.
