We were approached by Sound Environments with a brief to produce an electronically height-adjustable lab table that could also function as a conference table. During initial meetings with the client, we were able to get a good idea of the aesthetic requirements for the project. We were then able to really scrutinise clever technology and manufacturing processors to achieve an innovative solution that satisfied the client’s vision and help King’s College staff become more efficient in their working.
We provided a solution that balanced unique, striking design, innovative technology and practical materials. This transforming table was made with a removable rustic oak conference top with a solid plywood edge that converted to a fully functional surgical table with Corian® top and integrated appliances. Corian® is a material known for its strength and durability. It provides an easy-to-clean work surface and can stand up to harsh chemicals and antibacterial products. The table’s adjustable height enables users to switch between sitting and standing working, while the integrated Corian® sink allows for the utmost standards in cleanliness. The table is powered and includes integrated electrics to charge devices and provide connectivity to the King’s College data network. In terms of its design, the edges of the table were thermoformed to create an attractive curved finish.
We also fitted out the rest of the room with cabinetry to match the oak table top. We included high-end soft-close fittings to drawers and doors for a quality finish. Trespa® work tops were used in the rest of the room, which are hygienic and easy to clean.
