Now you can work, have a meeting, stop for lunch or enjoy a beer with your co-workers at the same multi-functional table.

The BuzziPicNic table by designer Alain Gilles, is a versatile table that can either serve as a common eating table, a gathering point for group interactions, a temporary working space, or just as a workbench. It can be used in common spaces and its function evolve according to the hour of the day and the needs of the people.
It offers a place to have breakfast or share coffee, a place to come and sit with a laptop or tablet to change air and focus on a specific task, a place to eat with others and relax at lunch time, a place to organise a quick discussion with a colleague in the afternoon hours, a place to share a pizza when projects have to be finalised.
The idea behind the table is to play with a typology that refers to pleasurable moments in life. Typically a picnic table makes one think of the summer and good times shared with friends. It is a friendly and informal gathering tool. The BuzziPicNic table aims to bring into the office a stress-free furniture typology that will hopefully help foster communication in the office.
The BuzziPicNic table has easy access flaps that allows for a quick and non-intrusive connectivity to a power source and internet. The groove in the table serves as an instant stand for tablets and smartphones.
The split-level version of the BuzziPicNic table enables people to work on two different levels around a same common table, while the straight model can be used side by side creating long graphic rows of table. Each side offers a different table top height; one side is at normal chair height, while the other is at standing or high stool height.
