Temo from Casala is a high quality table for conference and meeting room purposes. Although the Temo can be extended into many shapes and dimensions, it always maintains its light, almost floating, appearance. The Temo table top offers a wide diversity of standard shapes, and as a flip-top table with castors, Temo is both flexible and versatile to use. Poseur-height and lounge tables complete the range and allow the table to be used in adaptable spaces like exhibition centres.
Kinnarps presented one of the stand-out features from the Stockholm Furniture Fair in the Neo range of conference chairs. Designed by Fredrik Mattson for Materia and available from Kinnarps, the range has a strong design identity and an exclusive feel. In spite of an austere design, Neo’s organic lines are without sharp edges or unnecessary additional features, making it extremely comfortable to sit in.

The Graph conference chair, designed by Jehs & Laub was exhibited for the first time at the Stockholm Furniture Fair. The chair features a special form that combines a homogeneous, shell-shaped appeal with a sense of visual lightness. It also achieves a three-dimensional range of motion with an attachment at three points, one of them combined with a flat spring. Graph was honed and perfected for industrial production to become an impressive example of top-level modern conference culture.
An unusual five-sided configuration of conference furniture can be created using Eborcraft’s modular range of Gemini tilt-top tables. The cornerstone of the design is the pictured hexagonal table, which has been combined with a variety of trapezoidal, rectangular and square tables. When not in use, Eborcraft’s Gemini tables can be tilted and wheeled into upright storage. A variety of veneers are available, together with a range of laminated options in both plain colours and wood effects.
The muvman from aeris is an award winning active seat, which adapts itself easily to each user for ergonomically optimum sitting and standing/sitting at all heights. The tilted spring strut prevents a hunchback posture and the movement of the seat strengthens back muscles. The muvman has an extensive height adjustment range (48cm to 81cm and 60cm to 93cm according to model) for universal use at adjustable-height desks and information counters or in conference rooms.
The lightness and sleekness of the Configure-8 redefines the traditional conference table, changing the look of meeting rooms and conference facilities. It features an anodised silver-finished frame, a concealed table-linking system and fully adjustable feet that enable it to be levelled on an uneven floor. The Configure-8 is available with a choice of silver perforated aluminium or matching high-pressure laminate modesty panels.
