For those of you who know me well, you know my passion for designing furniture that fosters relationships instead of isolation. I always believe that good design can encourage people to want to interact …and what better than a picnic table is able to represent true socialization in public areas? Meet Granada, designed in Arizona for Florida-based Benchmark Contract Furniture.
The main idea behind the Granada table was to design a sleek product that can be used both inside and outside in cafes, open-space offices, restaurants, schools and colleges, etc…Stylish enough to be used indoors and strong enough to be used (and withstand the abuse of) outdoors as a traditional picnic table. No sharp corners …only friendly, eye appealing rounded details. Place this table inside an office (maybe with a bunch of plants) and it will certainly feel like you are working at the park with your colleagues!
Granada was designed specifically for public spaces and is built in North America using the most advanced technology in furniture production. A sublimation process was used to give the metal a warm wood appearance.
