Tyde Sit-Stand Table

Tyde single tables

Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, 2013

Standard Tyde tables consist of T-legs with height-adjustable columns, frame elements, table tops in a variety of surface materials, and a fleece cable tray to conceal the technical equipment and dampen the sound of the motorised height-adjustment mechanism. Thanks to the solid steel frame and die-cast feet, the tables are extraordinarily sturdy even without a cross brace.

While sit-stand tables are generally only available for single workstations, Tyde extends this concept to offer the combined benefits of standing and sitting work postures to double workstations and conference tables.

Tyde incorporates special features to address the acoustic challenges of today's open plan offices: the electric height adjustment motor is especially quiet and concealed under the table inside a sound-absorbing cover. In addition, the newly developed screens made of polyester fleece work effectively with the cover to dampen ambient noise.

Tyde caters to individual needs: desks in various sizes can be outfitted to accommodate the required functions. Users can choose from three height adjustment options: an electric motor for sit-stand tables, and a hand crank or manual locking mechanism for standard tables. Additional elements such as technical beams, various screens, CPU holders and other accessories allow for further individualisation.
