Multi-Purpose Split Tables

Tomás Alonso's Offset Table for Maxdesign Encourages Work Efficiency

— February 12, 2018 — Art & Design
The newly designed Offset Table by Tomás Alonso for Maxdesign is highly efficient in various workspaces. Many companies everywhere operate as part of an open-concept space, so naturally it makes sense to better accommodate workers. The Offset Table is highly functional and adaptable due to its unique design -- it has a split surface that opens up space for cable wires, desk accessories, lamps and even dividers. The simple split allows the work surface to operate much more effectively because of space administration.

The long table, divided in two, can be used for work or for common purposes and designer Tomás Alonso states its adaptability to be both a workspace and a table. The Offset table is available in numerous sizes, with multiple customized options.
