WORK – From focused individual work, temporary touchdown, to intensive collaboration or less structured tasks, everyone can work smarter with Edge.
MEET – From the formality of the boardroom to more relaxed brainstorming sessions and impromptu get-togethers of the creative office, Edge facilitates the sharing of ideas and collaborative processes central to the way we work.
EAT – Whether a laid back lunch or a more formal occasion, linked in a busy canteen or independently arranged in café or restaurant, Edge offers the perfect solution to every dining room.
Design studio PearsonLloyd has developed a table system that offers unrivalled flexibility of function and is equal to any challenge presented by the modern workplace or hospitality setting.
A simple, light, refined frame and cleverly engineered aluminium knuckle provide a clean and elegant aesthetic. Individual bays may be connected indefinitely to create a system of any size from simple workbenches to larger, more high density desking. Inset legs allow for free lateral movement and encourage collaboration. Streamlined and space saving for smaller creative studios or more expansive to suit larger corporate environments, Edge complies with the space available.
A range of beautifully designed functional accessories from lamp holders to paper trays create a clutter free zone and ensure important documents are to hand. Robust cable management, grommets and CPU holders free up space and maintain a tidy desk. Easily accessible power and data points enable mobile workers to simply connect and start working. Acoustic push pin screens facilitate concentration, define perimeters and allow for personalisation of individual space.
Robust yet refined, Edge has options to suit every interior scheme with a choice of table tops and finishes, accessories and colours can all be selected to fit. A more domestic scheme can be referenced with veneered tops and a softer palette or a more corporate, monochrome design can be developed.
Edge has outstanding sustainability credentials and uses the fewest components, a minimum of raw materials, an aluminium (rather than the more energy hungry steel) frame and has a recycled content of 68%. In Edge outstanding design and sustainability unite.
