Nienkämper announced today that Metronome™ Trestle, its latest table collection designed by Fig40, was bestowed with a MetropolisLikes Award at NeoCon. Every year, Metropolis editors evaluate the products showcased at NeoCon. They select the best products that represent the height of innovation, creativity, utility, and sustainability and award them with a prestigious MetropolisLikes seal. NeoCon –“the world’s leading platform and most important event of the year for the commercial design industry” – was held from October 4-6th at the Merchandise Mart in Chicago.
The new Metronome™ Trestle combines the casual energy of a standing desk with the elegant presence of a boardroom table. Metronome™ Trestle adds a versatile and refreshingly informal variation on a celebrated design. Building on the refined simplicity of the series’ angular metal frame, the Metronome Trestle table offers a standing-height surface that lends itself to meetings, collaborative work and use as a touchdown station.
While the metal frame maintains the exceptionally stable structural platform that elevates the Metronome™ collection, the deft addition of soft wood tones gives this high-tech table a timeless presence.The eye-catching wooden legs and metal foot rail can be paired with a wood veneer or plastic laminate top, while a central wood chimney facilitates tidy wire management.
