NeoCon East – New Commercial Furniture Part 5


Worksurfaces were in evidence everywhere at NeoCon East this year. Here are just a few of the desks and tables that stood around looking impressive at the Baltimore convention:

All-in One and One for All

This ISE All-in-One Desk is designed for student or employee training environments. It isn’t just ergonomic – it’s electric! The desk features an automated lift mechanism to raise and lower the flat screen monitor. This means the monitor can be hidden away when it would interfere with line of sight to the instructor. The CPU shelf is part of the leg of the desk for both use and storage. Cables are all tucked away neatly in the body of the desk. The whole thing is on casters so it can be relocated easily as needed.

Hello, Motus!

This piece of office furniture combines the best features of a conference table and a Murphy wall bed. When you use the table, it looks like a normal boardroom table with a classic dark wood or ultra-modern white glass finish. When you store the Motus, the legs rotate out and the top flips up to minimize the floor area required to store the table. The first table you roll into a corner or closet takes up a space only 24” deep. Each additional table in the nested series only adds an extra 15” to the overall storage footprint. This table is more fun than a transformer robot and less likely than a Decepticon to destroy human civilization as we know it.

Do I Hear an Ekko?

This table doesn’t have any fancy moving parts. It doesn’t have to. The Ekko Table Series from Davis Furniture arrests the viewer with the sheer beauty of its architecture and the richness of its materials. The table top rests on a swirled tripod of metal that’s unlike any other table leg or column in the office furniture industry. The list of available “toppings” is better than what you’d find at your favorite froYo shop. You can choose traditional surfaces like solid marble or select a rainbow of colors or patterns captured in clear resin with a tabletop by 3form®.
