Collaboration for here or to go: Dewey 6-Top Table from Fixtures Furniture by izzy+
NeoCon World’s Trade Fair 2010: The Merchandise Mart, Spaces 1150, 11-100
CHICAGO – June 2010 – The new 6-Top Table is a hospitable extension of the Dewey collection from Fixtures Furniture by izzy+ for educational solutions.
Inspired by the changes in working and learning patterns found in today’s universities, the Dewey 6-Top Table adds a spur-of-the-moment gathering place for up to six people to meet and use technology in the classroom, library or student union.
The 6-Top Table brings people closer together for team collaboration by reducing the standard conference table footprint. For extra credit, take notes, sketch or share ideas on the optional marker board surface of this creatively shaped table.
Designed by Chuck Saylor, izzy+, and Joey Ruiter, JRuiter Studio, the 6-Top Table can stand alone, pair with the Dewey 27” depth table to build wing configurations or link to other 6-Top Tables at a busy student union. It also doubles as a meeting table in the CEO’s office, where you can sit (29 inches) or stand (42 inches).
Quality and durability are must-haves in learning, so the 6-Top Table offers hard-wearing, grunge-free design, with urethane edges and power coated aluminum parts. Fasteners – no welds – enable easy service and maintenance.
“The 6-Top injects whimsical design with a hint of modernism into collaborative space to help inspire fresh ideas and shared experiences,” says Ruiter. “Human-centered design is embedded in the urethane edges. It’s flexible with sit-or-stand height. It’s also constructed with recycled and recyclable materials to remain true to the izzy+ principles of sustainability.”
