“In the design process for a new product, two specific demands have to be incorporated: it has to work well and it has to look good”, explains Swiss product designer Daniel Korb. With the table “CQ table.co” he has hit the mark. A sturdy aluminum frame meets flowing, organic shapes, combined with a comfortable set-up and a high degree of customization. The result is a conference table that embodies pure elegance.
Aluminum creates sturdiness
A matt anodized aluminum frame forms the solid basis of the table. Right here, the guide rails for the table legs are already integrated. The table legs themselves are also made of anodized aluminum. They are available in a high-gloss polished version or – for an extra-charge – color powder-coated. The legs are effortlessly height-adjustable, even when the complete table system is already assembled.
Several panel forms open new ways of communication
From round via square, rectangular and boat-shaped to a rounded triangle, diverse tabletop shapes as well as various sizes and materials are available for individual configuration. Korb’s favorite version is clear: “Conferencing situations at the round-triangular shaped table suddenly result in completely new ways of communication due to the unusual proximity to each other."
The name tells the story: “CQ” stands for “collaboration and quality”, the abbreviation “.co” marks the first two letters of the word "Conferencing", the table’s primary application area. Besides conferencing premises and seminar areas of hotels or trade fairs, the table can also be used within meeting rooms of administrations or industrial companies as well as in private homes. One thing is for sure: this table is always a true eye-catcher.
