What? Another Big Table Desking system from Vitra. Yes indeed, they have a bunch of white minimal looking big table systems. I can't explain it - there must be something going on, people working this way. What's different about this one? Vitra is anchoring the big table here with storage units on one or both ends. A streched fabric divider provides some privacy, but there is more there than meets the eye.
The divider looks rather minimal, but the understated appearance hides a number of functions. A tack surface is embedded along the top edge letting you tack items up along the divider. Also the top edge of the divider provides a bearing surface for a series of hanging accessories. File shelf, bins, phone shelf, you name it - you have a complete off desk accessory organizer there.
From the Vitra site:
Ad One is a modular office furniture system that adapts easily to the changing needs of an organisation.
Ad One is constructed according to architectural principles. The proportions of components are based on a 45X45 cm grid unit; the standard element is a single table measuring 90x180 cm. While the size of the table top remains constant, the vertical structure is variable: 4 table legs can support a solo, double or triple workplace.
Sensible storage components for above or beneath the table, together with the cable net, make Ad One a flexible, intelligent system that provides a comprehensive furnishing solution for any size office.
Even in offices with a large number of workstations, Ad One creates a calm and aesthetically pleasing environment, due to reductive formal qualities and the emphasis on vertical elements. Instead of competing with the interior architecture, Ad One complements it with restrained and compact forms. By adding colour accents, Ad One can also bring cohesion to an interior space.
