POULSBO, Wash. -- Among the Best of Neocon Gold recipients is Tia, Watson Furniture’s new product that won in the height-adjustable tables category. Tia is their table for today’s private office and meeting spaces. The focus was on intentional, height-adjustability paired with honest materials.
At NeoCon, Watson introduced Tia, which stands for Thoughtfully Integrated Adjustment.
Watson’s in-house design team took a “back to the drawing board” approach to design a height-adjustable product for private office, team and meeting rooms from the ground up.
According to Watson, although there’s no denying that adjustable, sit-to-stand work surfaces have made their way into private and meeting spaces, what is seen on the market today appears as though height-adjustability was an after-thought. The design approach for Tia was to start with height-adjustability (function) and make it beautiful (form) without the traditional, clunky look of a height-adjustable table.
The new collection aimed to serve the evolving needs of private office and team spaces.
They are two of the most common workspaces in today’s offices that remain in closed spaces, often placed around the perimeter of the open plan. And they continue to shrink in size. They each need thoughtful solutions for accessible power and cable management.
