Is VITRA creating SPHERE tables for Secretive UNITED NATIONS Meetings?

If it is good enough for the United Nations, it should be good enough for most of us! The Vitra Sphere Table is exactly what you need if you like your privacy at work, but you also don't want to feel like you are stuck in an enclosure. The base of this table is made out of solid wood and is a standard work-style table. However, one corner has a spherical shape attached to it, which will keep peering eyes away from your work. This circular dome is made out opalescent acrylic glass, which is opaque. This is done to make sure that you don't feel claustrophobic while working. The dome is moveable, so you are able to decide if you want it on the left or right side. This makes the table completely adaptable to your own needs. The Vitra Sphere Table is the perfect desk for anyone who is private, but doesn't want to feel trapped.

The table Sphere from Vitra was designed by Hella Jongerius in 2012 during the remodeling of North Delegates Lounge the United Nations building in New York. The hemispherical screen can be positioned to the right or left of the table, leaving complete freedom to suit individual needs. Details: Solid wood table with natural oak finish oil. Hemispherical screen and drawer bottoms in semi-translucent Plexiglas. Metallic elements in steel, matching the color of the casing.
