Whale Boardroom Table

Design Inspiration

Observing a surfacing whale in the wild is one of the most magical experiences. The elegant, streamline patterns created as the whale breaks through the water is the inspiration behind the detailing in the centre of the Whale Boardroom Table.

The table top is crafted from layers of recycled PET felt, recycled PET foam and FSC® birch wood.


Robust legs

Everything about the whale is majestic, even down to the arched, bow-line skeletal structure; it’s only fitting that this become the inspiration for the structure and supporting frame of the Whale Boardroom Table. The table’s legs are carved from robust, sustainably sourced oak. The surface is beautifully finished using PET felt that has been heated and pressed to give it a smooth, luxurious finish.
