Piper provides a modest and coherent aesthetic for working, meeting, training and learning settings, supporting an array of working styles and configurations. Boasting utmost flexibility, Piper can be turned from a linear desk into a T-shape table, a corner table, a group work table, an L-shape table or a collection of clusters to suit modern working needs. It is also available in a 120º layout option.

Designed and cut from standard material sizes, Piper’s production creates minimal wastage.

Piper is visually light, with contemporary square-edged steel legs that create little visual ‘noise’. Meanwhile, a minimal understructure eliminates leg obstructions and allows for storage space and the addition of further desking accessories such as cable reticulation.

The design of Piper was inspired, in part, by Schiavello’s favoured Aire collection of tables and workbenches, designed by Mario Ruiz. Light and versatile, Aire’s ability to adapt to new working requirements is synonymous with its design.

The table’s success is largely due to its ability to provide a cohesive aesthetic for training, meeting and work settings alike. Based on this, Schiavello sought to add an entry-level workstation with similar capabilities to its product range. With a flexible nature and unified range similar to that of Aire’s, Piper filled the market gap for a quality made, highly adaptable and entry-level workstation. With fabricated steel legs and a powerful, angular stance, Piper provides a similar flexibility to Aire with a more traditional, robust appearance.
