There is a lot of furniture in seminar rooms that is necessary, but only used temporarily. Accordingly, situations are common in which they can be a nuisance.
The 150 degree table combines a workplace and presentation medium by using a linear motor to fold the tabletop by 150 degrees. During the day it is easy to switch between the large table and a whiteboard.
The battery operation, from which accessories such as lighting or charging ports also benefit, enables maximum flexibility.
The table is used in the office context and in the educational sector, for which two different lines were designed.

A specific business line made of aluminum profiles with subtle chrome accents is ideal for startups or companies with limited space. The roles offer great flexibility when changing the room layout.
The Education Line is intended for schools or universities. In the course of the day, there may also be different situations, such as group work, presentation, etc., come to different requirements for the room. This table is based on lasered sheet metal parts in connection with wood with felt gliders instead of casters.
The table is available as a second variant, the Education Line.

However, both lines have the same technical features, such as the fact that the table conversion is initiated by a pushbutton under the edge of the table and the battery is charged using a magnetic puck on the joints.
