Product Story

A unique, central aluminium beam gives this table by Bruce Burdick its striking profile. Offered in a set arrangement or custom variations using a selection of components - including two top shapes in glass or stone - this sophisticated table is distinctive, highly functional and endlessly adaptable.

Burdick Group Tables

Endless Possibilities

Distinctive and functional, this unique furniture system is available in pre-configured options or can be customised using flexible modular components to form L, S, T or U shapes.

With two available surface shapes in glass, stone and laminate materials, Burdick tables contribute a sophisticated functionality to working, meeting and dining spaces.

Beautiful and Beautifully Made

Lovely to look at, the tables are fabricated from fine materials and a thoughtful design that allows cables to be routed along the beam and base assembly.

Plate-glass tabletops are 16-mm thick with polished edges. Natural stone tops have full bullnose edge profiles around the entire perimeter and are 19-mm thick. Laminate tops with black edges are available in two colours.

Tops attach to the beams, which are precision-tooled cast aluminium, available in 213-cm and 305-cm lengths. The top surface of the beam is painted to reduce glare and provide visual contrast. Steel leg columns are painted black umber and their aluminium bases feature adjustable 6-mm glides.

Design story

Given his background in exhibit display, it's not surprising that designer Bruce Burdick uses drama for a purpose. His Burdick Group tables are a perfect example. He describes them as "workbenches for executives". The tables demonstrate his belief that desks should be designed with the same dedication to superlative performance as custom golf clubs or a high-performance car.

The Burdick Group system, his first project for us, is a unique assemblage of work surfaces, paper handling and storage elements, and electronic equipment supports, located along a structural armature in whatever configuration best suits the way people work. It can be arranged in many different sizes and configurations and can change and grow to reflect changing work patterns.

It's no wonder that Burdick's design has created a lot of buzz and won awards. In 1980, the Burdick Group received design awards from the Institute of Business Designers and the Industrial Designers Society of America. The following year, Time magazine named the Burdick Group system one of the Best of 1981 for Industrial Design. Years later, the tables are considered contemporary classics, still working hard, still stunning, still desired.
