Coalesse Wins IDEA Award for Design Excellence

Coalesse, a premium live/work furnishings brand, announced that its Akira collection of tables was awarded a 2009 Bronze Award by IDEA.

Coalesse's winning entry, Akira, stands out amongst other flip-top tables in the market for its unique folding capability, ease of use and flexibility. With its patented dual-cam folding mechanism, Akira's top flips, legs rotate and the table automatically adjusts to a compact "nesting" position. They nest in a straight stack position, versus diagonal, dramatically minimizing required storage space. It's one-handed release lever makes it virtually effortless for one person to set up, adjust, and take down in a matter of minutes. The collection boasts a wide range of sizes and shapes (including rectangle, half-round and trapezoid) and many cable management options allowing for endless configuration possibilities for higher education, training and other professional settings. User friendly, highly intuitive, and 87% recyclable, the Akira collection demonstrates the innovative and sustainable design ethos of Coalesse products.

"It is a distinct honor to be recognized by a panel of peers and we are thrilled to have the Akira product line represented among this year's IDEA award winners."
