Dropping into Halcon at Neocon15, my eyes had to adjust. I was looking for portable tables and the elegant conference tables in front of me were a surprise. The legs were the giveaway, there were wheels, but the legs and the veneer went beyond the typical portable table. Halcon tables are portable, movable, and durable in the marketplace and delivered with Skill.
German born industrial designer living in Switzerland, Andreas Krob, designed Skill. The line is minimal, distilled down to its essence and looks just as elegant stacked up and folded away. The tables are sturdy with a flush mount center that opens for necessary cords and cables. Krob takes every familiar description of portable tables and turns it on its head. From the sculptural metal legs to genuine wood veneers, Skill is too nice to store away.
The tabletops come in a high-end range of a laminates and wood veneer. According to Halcon president Ben Conway, Halcon is the only company putting wood veneer on this type of substrate, an innovative use of material. All substrates are FSC certified for every project. Halcon does their own veneer layups in-house. The company controls the wood veneer process and veneer source collection for FSC certification.
Skill won 2 silver awards at Neocon15 for ‘Conference room furniture’ and ‘Tables: training and work.’
