Italian brand Fantoni has collaborated with design studio Metrica to create a range of office tables made from solid oak and beech, which aim to bring a softer look to work environments. The Woods collection is the latest range of office furniture from Fantoni.
Created for the contract market, the Woods collection offers great comfort and aesthetic quality. It is a complete series of tables, created to provide a flexible solution that would cater to the new ways of working and on how the workplace is changing. It offers a range of modules, from the “focus” station to a shared one, and from meeting areas to collaboration spaces.
Woods includes large executive and meeting tables, fixed office desks and height-adjustable workstations. The collection can switch from clerical to executive simply by changing the combination of tops and legs, with an interplay that maintains consistency of design and allows for numerous different layouts.
The key feature of this innovative design is the use of solid beech or oak wood. This material gives a sense of naturalness and visual comfort that is the perfect complement to the comfort offered by the performance of the table, which can be used in both a standing and a sitting position.
The sloped design of the leg gives the table a simple yet sophisticated look, comprising two telescopic cylindrical elements, one of which is in wood. Inside it is an electronic mechanism that effortlessly adjusts the height of the table top.
The table’s electrical connections are hidden under the top, while the modesty panel can be fitted with storage accessories and with a USB socket for recharging electronic devices.
