DESIGNERS SELECT Tables and Desks Designers name their favorite recent tables for work and play Angie Lee Design Director, Interiors Perkins Eastman New York Innovant: FORm_office Table Davis: Ekko Andreu World: Tao Table Reader Service No. 210 Reader Service No. 211 Reader Service No. 212 “Trading desks have become more streamlined and standard workplace benching more high-tech. This desk beautifully captures the overlap between the two worlds. I could use this for trading floor support or for a non-trading client interested in an elegant profile with height adjustability.” “The Ekko tables, with their technology management and sculptural base, are genius, and some of my absolute favorites in the contract world. The latest addition of this occasional table makes this a compelling suite.” “This table’s asymmetric base offers generous knee space but is cleverly disguised as a whimsically modern gesture.” Hightower Furniture: Insula Tables Bernhardt Design: Itinerary Geiger International: Loophole Reader Service No. 213 Reader Service No. 214 Reader Service No. 215 Senior Designer IA Interior Architects Chicago “Level changes and nesting options have been a great option for our clients. With the reduction of space, the idea of different heights and flexibility are becoming more popular.” “Flexibility in our mobile world has become a norm in our corporate environments. These graceful multifunction tables are perfect for everything from offices at a law firm to a technology company.” “I am inspired by the subtle curves in this piece. Reminiscent of Danish classic design, this begs one to look at the innovative woodwork detailing.” Patricia Muzlay Giorgetti: YLI Table ClassiCon: Bell Table Davidson London: Bronson Table Reader Service No. 216 Reader Service No. 217 Reader Service No. 218 “There is something honest, true, and comfortable about Chi Wing Lo’s table. The warmth of timber marries beautifully with the inlaid top, creating perfect harmony.” “This jewel-like table by Sebastian Herkner is a true eye-catching piece. I love the way the colored glass transforms the quality of light. It’s a beautiful blend of a delicate hand-blown base with a spun brass top.” Neil Schneider Senior Designer Wimberly Interiors London 118 “What strikes me most is the elegance with which the horizontal and vertical planes intersect. The contrasting materials make it a focal piece for any luxury hospitality project, one that I think Coco Chanel would have loved!” JANUARY | FEBRUARY 2013
