Orangebox BAE - 10


Designed for eight to twenty people, BAE worktables are ideal in workspaces where the collaborative is as important as the personal; the casual valued above formality.

Made from solid industrial oak, the worktables have MDF tops that can be specified in a choice of five industrial oak laminates, from light to dark, and seven monochrome colours, from white to black – all with a solid oak edge. The tops overhang the structure to afford generous free leg space and allow two people between each leg, with an additional two people at each end, either in line or at right angles along the short end of the table.

Each top can be specified as a single material or as a three-way split to encourage a more personal demarcation of the worktop. Each of its three planks can also be specified individually from the oak or coloured laminate ranges, or, similarly, by combining finishes from the melamine range. The industrial aesthetic of BAE can be enhanced with the option of expressing the solid oak leg through the worktop.

BAE worktables can be specified with either an LED task light liner separating the two sides of the table, and positioned and dimensioned to offer seated users visual privacy at eye height, or the adjustable circular Pablo LED task light. Both lights have on/off switches.

Power / data is available via on-top socket units or within below-top power boxes accessed via lift-off circular disc lids. As with the original Yawl tables, these worktables are available in our standard oak finishes – light, natural, dark oak or black – and their modular construction allows them to be easily site-assembled.


Designer Notes:

“The ambition of BAE could not be simpler. We wanted to create a range of large, scalable collaborative worktables that would offer the solid satisfaction and aesthetic experience of the traditional refectory table. (A long-time staple of the English country house and early university mess hall.)” – Gerard Taylor.
