Cern is an elegant, small scale table.
Cern is a modern interpretation of a classic harvest table. It’s a closed, symmetrical structure punctuated at the corners with the connection of legs. This structure facilitates a fully featured electrical system complete with routing within the legs to the floor. By integrating the electrics into the the beam, it allows for a fully featured table with a clear glass top and forms the reference for the name of the table – the large hadron collider at Cern in Switzerland.
The tables size range (up to 10’) allows for glass to be used without a subtop and the use of solid wood legs and corner connections that express the materiality of the leg through the glass. The legs are also available in aluminum in a variety of finishes and solid tops are also available.
The scale of the table is optimized for smaller meeting rooms, collaborative team work and with the addition of a modesty panel and other accessories for private office desks.
