The Sphere Table possesses a unique silhouette with a playful presence and functional purpose. Featuring a solid oak frame and a center drawer with clean lines and a natural oiled finish, the table's right corner is enveloped by a spherical privacy bubble made out of dyed-through acrylic glass. This translucent bubble allows you to tuck laptops out of sight while still allowing light to flow freely into your workspace, and a selection of upbeat colors enhance your space with style. Metal support elements in powder-coated steel are matched to the shell's color to create a cohesive finished look.

Designer: Hella Jongerius
Dutch designer Hella Jongerius (born 1963) combines craft techniques with modern technology to create objects that are strikingly new and provocative. Jongerius' range is diverse and broadly derived. Her designs typically employ a mélange of media such as ceramics, steel, plastic, felt, and precious metals. The resulting designs emphasize simple forms, rich textures, and materials that often retain traces of their origin and purpose. Jongerius works in Rotterdam where she heads her own design company, JongeriusLab. Her designs have been manufactured and sold by Vitra, Cappellini, and IKEA to name a few. Jongerius' designs are also in the permanent collections of several leading museums including the Museum of Modern Art, New York and San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. The first survey of Jongerius work was published by Phaidon in 2003.View other products by Hella Jongerius
Classic. Modern. Sustainable.
Vitra has manufactured furniture designs by Charles & Ray Eames and George Nelson since 1957. Building on this foundation, Vitra has developed a wide range of furnishings for the office, for the home and for public spaces in collaboration with progressive designers. Yet Vitra is more than just a design-oriented manufacturing company. The name also stands for the Vitra Design Museum, for a collection of modern furniture and its accompanying archive, for workshops and publications on topics of design, and for an architectural concept that unites buildings by Frank Gehry, Nicholas Grimshaw, Zaha Hadid, Tadao Ando, Alvaro Siza, Herzog & de Meuron and SANAA at the Vitra Headquarters in Birsfelden (Switzerland) and on the Vitra Campus in Weil am Rhein (Germany).
Product longevity is central to Vitra's contribution to sustainable development; short-lived styling is avoided at all costs. This can be seen most clearly in the classical pieces of furniture that have been used for decades, had several owners and have then even ended up as a part of a collection. For Vitra, the manufacture of sustainable products means intense pre-production development, where the highest-grade materials are selected and tests are carried out that simulate 15 years of use. In order to enforce and monitor sustainable development in all business activities of the company, a work group was formed in 1986 by the name of 'Vitra and the Environment'. Because of this, Vitra can proudly claim that it has been dedicated to sustainability for nearly a quarter of a century.View other products from Vitra
