This lovely and unique SLO Gen Table/Desk is made using HI-MACS* which is the perfect material for building it, because it offers resistance, seamless joints, outstanding capacity to be combined with other materials and smooth surface. What is amazing when you first look at it is the fluidity that feels like is going to melt on the floor as would do a metal exposed to high temperature, but in the same time the solid feeling of it. It’s a delight the perfect combination between the white shiny surface and the natural wood, creating a soft and elegant contrast.
Its design it’s not only eye catching but very practical too, offering storage space very nice divided for files and anything that you want to store or to keep them handy, and a sitting space for guests or business partners. You can find this dramatic table/desk at the main entry of GENSLER’S, Los Angeles, and is the result of innovative partnership between Gensler – Department of Architecture at the College of Architecture and Environmental Design at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo (California).
* HI-MACS – Latest composite material that can be used for kitchen countertops, bathrooms, bars, receptions, tables, window sills and all kinds of furniture. Photo credits: ©Gensler Los Angeles
