Innovative Office Table Concepts

Ergonomists agree that a taller stool or chair can increase productivity and core strength. They recruit muscles to positively influence better posture and make employees more engaged in their work. Like the large rubber stability ball of a few years ago, the standing stool or the ‘active sitting’ chair has taken workplaces to new heights – and the desks and tables have to rise along with it.

Because we’re a custom conference table manufacturer, we are keenly aware of all new office design concepts and office design. From building custom shaped tables to match our clients’ exact room specifications to providing technology and communication services built into our product, Paul Downs is proactively innovating to meet the design demands of our clients.

A few weeks ago, we make a table for the University of Calgary in this new higher-height design mode. The circular table was 144” by a height of 36” as opposed to a normal desk or table height of 30”. This specially designed Sapele and Corian table also boasted of a Wilsonart Chalkboard paint along the outside edge.

The University had a certain idea and custom design in mind and Paul Downs delivered!
