Inspired by customers and today’s changing workspaces, Preside integrates technology and storage to ensure effective communication among employees and enrich their experiences. Now, companies can create spaces in which people can work and present comfortably, using features like built-in power and data ports for tabletops from 2 feet to 30 feet and beyond.

Featuring new top shapes available in multiple widths and depths, table heights, metal bases, a team touchdown table and a mobile collaborative table, Preside provides a table for every zone, from individual offices and small or large conference rooms to creative workstations. HON says the versatile series can make any workspace feel more interactive and inviting.

Whether your office is contemporary or classic in style, the versatility of Preside is at home in cafés, meeting rooms and other collaborative spaces. This renovated collection features enhanced aesthetics as well as new types of collaborative tables, and serves as a comprehensive solution for small- and large-group collaboration.

With teams gravitating toward open, idea-friendly spaces, the Preside collection of products blends naturally into any workspace to increase productivity and support many different styles of work.

Preside components are highlighted below.

Tabletops: Preside tables are available in a variety of top shapes and sizes including a highly demanded 60″ round table. Customers can choose from square, round, soft square, single tops and rectangle, arc end, boat or racetrack modular tops.

Angled legs: Preside metal leg bases are available in both seated and standing heights and with wire management capability. A coordinating bench can provide a cohesive table solution, or the bench can be placed as a stand-alone seating option in any workspace.
