The Drum+Base collection is a customisable range of table and workstation systems built upon an innovative cantilever drum base. Available as either a fixed or electronic height adjustable module, the Drum+Base column can be used as a single piece or paired with multiple units, presenting the capacity to scale the application from small media table, focus and executive workstations, through to large boardroom tables
The Drum+Base Range was born from the requirement to consider an aesthetic height adjustable system for more appropriate use within typical collaborative/meeting settings, and for use as hot desking and workstations. Adaptability, functionality and improved usability were key factors to be included to meet a range of applications, all built around a single design module, with classic architectural features such as cantilever tops and a simple powder coated rolled steel drum base. Practical considerations such as seamless power and data reticulation within the drum, accessories built within the robust supporting sub-frame to maintain the slimline appearance of the overall design were other pre-requisites.
The Drum+Base is an impressive desk and table design solution that fuses custom joinery and steel fabrication with robust engineering. Its elegance is in the simplicity of the final design with all complex mechanical and support structures cleverly concealed to present a minimalist aesthetic.
