Short Description

Senrab is a table for dining and working in small homes, creating a healthy divide in work and life.

Detailed Description

With populations rising and small homes becoming the best way to tackle it, people need a place to work from home that doesn’t disturb their home life. Senrab creates a healthy divide between working and living allowing them to co-exist in the same home space. A concept in demand with the increase in home workers due to Covid-19. Senrab improves productivity of home working with an adaptable workspace for two that blocks out home distractions. When closed, storing and charging work items to hide all work from a home setting helps the user relax and settle down for the evening. Inspired by Scandinavian furniture it incorporates super elliptical curves and a natural clear finish. When opened there are two work spaces with a minimal pin boards allowing the user to be creative with their space. Made from European oak and cork in batch production of 100 to be distributed across Europe. The inclusion of disassembly allows the table to be shipped easily with parts also being easily replaced.
