For the awesome Barbarian Group in New York, CWa are creating an undulating ‘endless table’ to serve their 125 employees in an open work space that stretches across a city block. The table surface is resin coated and finished like a surfboard, with a plywood substructure that lifts the table over circulation aisles and shelters informal meeting spaces. Completion is targeted for the end of 2013.
