Teknion’s Marketplace Worktable

Inspired by the forms of industry and infrastructure, the long-span Marketplace worktable supports today’s collaborative working environments.

Teknion’s Marketplace Worktable


December 6th, 2012

Teknion reinvents the worktable with industrial designer Carl Gustav Magnusson’s Marketplace. Able to achieve an uninterrupted span of over 6 metres, Marketplace minimises barriers to the moment-by-moment interactions of today’s team-based office.


Says Magnusson, “I was stuck in traffic and noticed this span – a truss over six lanes. I was in admiration of this ubiquitous product and began wondering how I could use it in the office furniture industry.”

Marketplace can accommodate eight 60-inch work desks in one uninterrupted span. It also offers generous wiring capacity, well-designed privacy options, and a concise set of components that allow for quick and easy installation.


A minimal structure unites with maximum functionality, allowing higher workstation density, providing accessibility to team members, and serving a range of planning scenarios.

Marketplace is designed for application throughout the workplace, including permanent addresses that require a clear definition of space and a higher degree of privacy. Optional canopies can enhance a sense of place.

The iconic design of Marketplace, says Teknion, echoes the rigorous functional elegance of modern office architecture.


Marketplace is available in Singapore at Vanguard Interiors.
