Collaboration Table
Studio Progression: Part VI

Architecture / Furniture / Parliament / Studio

To facilitate impromptu discussions between designers and programmers, we designed a sitting-height work table to tag team with the taller Brooklyn Streets Work Table and placed it right in the middle of our production area. Like its big brother the Brooklyn Streets Work Table, this table originally lived as a pizza oven, but now a quick push off your desk sends your chair gliding into a magical collaborative wonderland.

We didn't want to use brand new hardware on our ancient pizza base so we jogged across the street to Winks Hardware and asked them if they had any ideas.
