Radiant Benches by Arcadia
Radiant is a collection of functional benches and occasional tables for lobbies, waiting rooms, or any high profile space. Designed by Christopher Panichella, the pieces are highlighted by the integration of metal frames into the wood platform tops, a signature trait that adds reinforcement to the overall structure in a way that maintains its modern and minimalistic silhouette. Benches are offered in two seat and three seat sizes. They feature inset cushions with suspension support for comfort and a flat surface area for keeping beverages, mobile devices, and small accessories within reach. Accompanying occasional tables are available in 17″ and 19″ heights, with square or rectangular top shapes in various dimensions. All Radiant seating and table models are presented in Maple, Walnut, or White Oak veneers, in standard and custom wood finishes as well as in laminate selections. Metal frame options include Polished Aluminum, Graphite, Metallic Champagne, and Metallic Silver—in addition to premium metal finishes for pops of color. Non-skid glides are available for hard surface floors.
Platform by Versteel
Platform is a table series that allows users to make the decisions in order to customize their piece. Facility executives can essentially design their own tables by choosing a top shape and size (round, square, or rectangle), adding the number and shape of columns (round, square, or conference), then finishing it off with a base style (disc, square, or rectangle) and size. Materials and finish choices consist of Formica, Powder-Coat, Nevamar, Edges, Veneer, Krystal/Cast, Wilsonart, and Pionite. Power options include Henri (pop-up power and data source for all tables), Power & Data Globe (simple table top power and data unit), and Power Access (comes with two power outlets and in both soft and hard-wire options). Wire management can be done by oval grommets, round grommets, plastic legways, or plastic runners. Other features include alternative table heights (e.g., children’s, lounge or end table, stand-up); a full range of ergonomic, functional, and decorative edges; and fixed bases with a heavy gauge plate for stationary configurations. Platform is level 2 certified by meeting the ANSI/BIFMA e3 Furniture Sustainability Standard. It is also ETL Environmental VOC Certified through use of powder coated steel and Carb II Compliant wood to help minimize the affect on indoor air quality. The design of the Platform series was guided by the Design for the Environment (DfE) principles incorporating aspects like recycled content and end of life strategies.
