One of our most experimental projects, for internet ad agency The Barbarian Group, has been featured on the cover of Interior Design’s May issue! After a challenging design and CNC production process of building the monolithic 1,100-foot desk, the Superdesk went viral earlier this year in The New York Times, the New Yorker, and global webzines (the project currently has nearly 20,000 views on our Behance page). Interior Design covers its superdeskness in a great color spread.

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.
