Preside, a holistic table solution to fit your space and design aesthetic, just keeps getting better. Whether it’s used as a stand-alone solution or matched with existing HON desk lines, Preside was designed to adapt to the needs of any space, outfitting all areas: conference, meeting, café and commons, collaborative, engaging spaces and more. With so much to offer, what more could HON add? Well, this week we’re introducing three key enhancements that will make Preside an even more versatile solution.

1. From Conference Room to Collaborative Space
The Preside expansion addresses growing workplace trends with new collaborative table solutions. These new tables help bring people together and offer a clean, modern design. Available in 72” or 96” lengths, select from seated- or standing-height.  Like the rest of the Preside line, these tables are available with or without technology. Choose between a full or half modesty panel, or a stretcher beam and no modesty panel when powered. Even more reason to love these new collaborative tables, the modesty panels can now be specified in the same laminate as the top or a coordinating laminate for a dual finish look!

2. Power Up with More Technology Options
Everyone is plugged in and on the go, so quick and easy access to power is important in both the conference and collaborative spaces. Preside has always had power options, but our recent additions provide more flexibility. New Extron plates offer more data options such as DP, VGA, HDMI and USB. These plates fit into the existing flip-top ports making it easy to swap out when power/media needs change, creating a future-proof way to power up Preside tables. Staying connected is something to get excited about!

3. Build-Your-Own Perfect Space
New credenza options make it easy to create just the right solution for any space.  The Preside hospitality credenza was revamped last year to add great features, like hidden drawers and ventilation for a mini-fridge. While these great options are still available, the recent expansion includes a smaller, 60” buffet credenza (also with ventilation) and new modular credenza components. The new modular models allow you to choose from a bookshelf with a door unit, an open bookshelf, or a box drawer and door unit. The units can be mixed and matched to create just the right credenza for any space. Units can then share a spanning top and a spanning back for a finished and custom look. Sizable, custom looking credenzas- who wouldn’t get excited?

Preside has always been an exciting solution, but these new expansions reinvigorate our excitement for this popular collaborative solution. Which new enhancement are you most excited about?

Desks shouldn’t have to be one-size-fits-all. HON recognized the need for a solution with greater customization that would allow users to create spaces to support their individual work styles.

The word “concinnity” is defined as the skillful and harmonious arrangement or fitting together of the different parts of something, which makes it the perfect name for our newest and largest laminate desk line. Meet Concinnity – Upscale Design.  Everyday Practicality.  Offering a coordinated suite of laminate desk and storage components that let you create a custom look without custom products, there are endless reasons why we are so excited about our newest solution!

Welcome and Reception:

Welcome and reception areas are the first spaces someone sees when they enter a building; especially, for the first time. That’s why it’s important to use furniture in these spaces that is inviting and leaves a positive impression. Try to incorporate soft seating that draws people in to the space. Don’t forget the impact that lighting can play in making a space inviting. It is also nice to consider some sort of service area to make people feel welcome.

Welcome and Reception

Common Spaces:

Common areas are similar to welcome and reception areas in that they should also be inviting. However, common areas should be designed to accommodate larger groups of people. As you can imagine, more people means more furniture needs and preferences. Consider a variety of seating and table options in common areas so individual work styles can be addressed. Vary the heights of tables and offer a blend of café and soft seating in the space and you’ll commonly find people in the common areas.

Common Area

Private Spaces:

Private areas are the place for heads down, focused work, so these individual spaces should be designed to maximize productivity. Be sure to include ample worksurface space and easy access to a variety of storage.  Extended surfaces and overhead storage give a person more room to spread out and work.. Private offices should also have task chairs that accommodate an all day sit to ensure the worker is comfortable.

Private Office

Collaborative Areas:

Collaborative areas should bring people together and offer a break from individual heads down work, while allowing people to be productive. Consider integrating collaborative areas alongside individual workstations. Try to include worksurfaces that can be used to lay out documents and soft seating. Also consider lightweight, easy-to-move furniture (i.e. cushions or seating and markerboards with casters) for a flexible, fun way for people to meet.

Collaborative Space

In which type of space do you work best and why?
