CENTRO

A WARM PRESENCE

The kitchen table, originally the focal point of family life, has now been adapted to the modern work place, providing a similar function, a place for intimate meetings, larger gatherings, collaboration and socialising. Just like its domestic predecessor, Centro has a resilient, hard wearing top, designed for a variety of functions, mounted on solid oak legs & strong in an appearance that reflects its origins.

MADE OF STRONG STUFF

The robust beam structure and four sturdy legs can support a table up to 4.5 metres in length. The tops incorporate concealed power units for recharging laptops and tablets. Two options are available, dining and poser height with matching stools and benches.

PROCESS

The large Centro collaborative tables were designed to be supported on four stable oak legs, giving it a strong grounded appearance. The intention was to produce tables with long spans, only maintained by these four robust legs, but constructed from a series of parts that could be easily transported and assembled on site. Rails, legs and sectional tops are tied together through strong steel corner joints, which give the tables their inherent strength. Early prototypes in lightweight panels and soft wood frames determined the scale and structure of the design. These were adjusted and modified through a series of prototypes to achieve the right proportions and strength.
