Ergonomic Trestle Tables

This Desk by Viccarbe Offers a Large Communal Workspace for Offices

— July 31, 2016 — Art & Design
With many offices opting for open concept layouts to increase collaboration, fluidity between different teams and a more communal work atmosphere, workspaces such as the Trestle Table help to facilitate such an environment. The unit features a large wooden surface accented with two V-shaped legs that provide support and added height.

The Table is available in three customary sizes to suit a variety of needs. These include 94-inches long up to nearly double with 184-inches to provide a grand meeting place for several employees to collectively work at. The table can be used as meeting space, collaborative desks or lunch tables. Thanks to the V-shaped legs positioned towards the middle of the table, chairs can be placed all around the unit without worry of the sitter's feet knocking against the legs.
