"Larger tabletops can be joined with small study tables and drawing tables to make a table with a desired composition. The design was developed from a basic trestle and is in fact an extended trestle that is wide enough to be a table."


"One or two trestle tables can be assembled with a larger tabletop to form a bigger table. The longest table can be used as a horizontal or vertical easel. The metal ridge that is used to join tabletops, can also be used as a pencil and utensil holder."


"The table tops, made of High Pressure Laminate (HPL) and available in various color ways, can be disassembled and stacked on top of an organizing system. This organizer was also designed for the museum and allows the staff to add or remove tables at their convenience."


"Instead of looking redundant, the colorful tabletops still add something to the space with their presence when they're stacked up."
