The table in the Embrace series is a multi-purpose system and creative take on the dinner or conference table, turned into a playful workspace with different colorful attachments and attributes. With its modular attributes the table is transformed into a modern workspace where each person can adjust the personal space with a hanging shelf, a sliding sound absorber, and a set of trays connected to a frame. The attributes are avaialbe in all the colors of the Summer collection: burgundy, latte, forest green, dusty blue and black.
The table has, like its sibling the armchair, oval legs which are attached to the tabletop using an aluminum bracket. This enables a high level of flexibility both in regards of placement of the legs, size of the tabletop, as well as to how many chairs can be placed under the surface.
