The endless table / Clive Wilkinson Architects

Posted in Architecture - Office Buildings by * FORMAKERS

“At The Barbarian Group, we believe in the power of ideas to provoke a reaction.

So when challenged with our own brief – to keep the Barbarian tribe happy and inspired everyday – we turned to Clive Wilkinson, an architect who shares our passion for interesting ideas in a world pre-disposed to boring sameness”. The architect responded promptly to the request to create a collaborative and creative environment with a long work surface, that to call it a table is a gross understatement.

“A desk that we could all share, literally – 4,400 square feet (409 square meters, 870 plywood panels) of undulating, unbroken awesomeness to keep people and ideas flowing”.

A versatile “endless table” for all employees and collaborators (125 to 175 people) in the New York office of the digitally-centred creative agency. “The table surface is resin coated and finished like a surfboard, with a plywood substructure that lifts the table over circulation aisles and shelters informal meeting spaces”.

Relying on a limited budget, the architects adapted an existing space completely freeing the central area. The structure of the table is made of plywood and seems to rise from the oak floor to create curves and arches that form shelves, meetings rooms, and individual work nooks.

The project has been nominated for the 2014 World Interior of the Year Award, which rewards the most interesting projects of the last 12 months.

The winner will be announced in Singapore in October..
