Neocon 2020: A height-adjustable table you can put together in under 5 minutes? This one has a cable organizer and collision detection

by Brianna Crandall — June 15, 2020 — Teknion Corporation, an international designer and manufacturer of innovative workplace interiors used around the world, has just announced the reengineering of its hiSpace Quick Connect Tables. The elevated design includes a softer profile, simple yet meaningful conveniences, brand new technologies, and an assembly time of less than five minutes.

Dannion Smith, director, Product Management, Seating and Ergonomic Products at Teknion, remarked:

The new design of hiSpace provides impactful user comfort and convenience features. The simple yet clever design of the table allows users to get up and working with their needs top of mind. Technologically savvy, hiSpace can be automatically adjusted from one position to the next with a single push of a button. The best part of this table is actually what you don’t see. The table comes pre-wired with extra places to hide unsightly cables, uses a sophisticated software system that can be customized to fit its application, and includes a world-class collision detection system. In addition, the table is visibly fastener-free.

The hiSpace redesign includes three new features that cut the assembly time to less than five minutes, providing user convenience and accessibility. With its new “Connection Kit,” the table’s top frame comes preinstalled on the worksurface to speed up professional installations as well as remove the burden of fumbling with a big bag of screws in your home office or in the workplace.

The table is also equipped with a Power Pak — a prewired Felt Cover Cable organizer that manages all cables and controls — which directs the control box, the switch, motor cables, and table power cord with ease so stress due to wire management is all but eliminated.

hiSpace’s gyroscope-based collision detection system senses when the tabletop starts to tilt when a collision occurs, and immediately stops and reverses direction.

The table is compliant with the BIFMA height-adjustment range from 22.6 to 48.7 inches (57.4 to 123.6 cm). Each table comes programmed to have a single push button to adjust to its memory positions as well as the ability to reconfigure both maximum and minimum height limits.

hiSpace is available in two depths — 23 and 29 inches (56 and 74cm); and five widths — 46 to 70 inches in 6-inch increments (117 to 178cm in 15cm increments). The base features three finish options in Very White, Ebony, and Platinum. Worksurfaces are available in Foundation Laminate and Seamless finishes with a choice of straight or radius edge options.
