Max's gentle hourglass shape allows it to fit side-by-side with tables of the same type as well as with other office furnishings. It can stand alone as a single work station or together with companion pieces, creating work islands for open spaces. Max is lightweight and mobile, with three metal tubes in chromed steel joined at the base and a scratch-proof laminated top. Available in three sizes with castors or feet (castors are equipped with auto-lock brakes for stability) and in a selection of neutral, versatile colors.
Material(s): Top: scratch-proof laminate; Frame: chrome-plated steel

Such a Fun Table (Desk)
By: Kurt K., Homeowner (Palm Springs, CA)
We are using this table as a desk for an office that doubles as a guest room where the large wheels make it easy to glide the table to the side of the room to make room for the murphy bed to fold down. We have retrofitted the table by drilling some holes for computer chords and attaching some hardware to the underside to supply power and dock a laptop. It works great and provides a very functional desk that feels light in the room.
