The Kotatsu Work Table
Kaiju Studios designed the Kotatsu Work Table as a relaxed yet functional focal point for collaborative work. A member of Herman Miller’s new Intersect Portfolio, the table’s inspiration is pulled from the traditional Japanese kotatsu, a low table that families gather around for eating, working, playing and keeping warm. The table’s lower height instructively suggests an informal gathering, which is often conducive to collaborative group work. Details such as a large, uninterrupted surface for spreading work out on and a lower shelf for keeping coffee safe from spills cater to the task at hand.
