The Aero conference collection is a collaboration between Qdesign and CCN International to develop a structurally sophisticated yet aesthetically clean furniture collection. Aero tables are anchored by a linear metal base. A minimal wood column grows upward, blossoming into the cantilevered sub-top of the table. This transitional form is like a tree, growing from its sturdy base to its outreaching canopy.
Aero blends this organic structure with modern architecture into one cohesive element. Aero’s aircraft–like monocoque construction provides structural integrity while preserving the sleek, modern stylings. The unique angular sub-top lends a floating quality to the tabletop. This conceals the structural support elements enhancing the appearance of the ultra–thin top. The base and column assembly are connected horizontally with a steel “U” channel beam that serves as a structural bridge between the columns and the raceway to distribute power and data the length of the table.
The Duotone finish provides a variety of visual alternatives. Plain sliced cherry, maple and rift oak are standard finishes for the top and column bases. The sub-top is coated in one of six mica–flake paint colors. These two surfaces can be specified to blend or contrast to make unique design statement. Metal accent details on the base, feet, and hardware add the right finishing touch. These components are available in polished stainless steel, aluminum powder coat, or additional powder coat colors.
Power and data are accessed through an all-wood flip–up door with a dampened, soft closing hinge. The access door is sequenced and matched for a virtual seamless grain pattern. There’s no exposed metal or grain variation to interrupt the beautiful CCN veneered top. Few tables are able to execute this level of detail.
A variety of top shapes and sizes are available. The trapezoid shape of the video-conferencing table is unique because of the way the underside tapers downward as the top grows in width, giving it the look of a ship’s hull.
Aero has breadth of product. All components partner with the Aero table and embody the same sleek, aircraft–like quality with metal bases and cantilevered wood tops. Media units, buffet credenzas, serving carts, and lecterns create a seamless, modern, technology-friendly conference-room environment.
Aero is a simple, clean, minimal approach that delivers tomorrow’s conference environment today.
