The HQ Multifunctional Table by Nora Voon

Home > Winners > #111956


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
The HQ

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Multifunctional Table

INSPIRATION:
During this pandemic, we realized that most people are frustrated with living and working from home and most of the time they complained about having their partners/spouse being always around them even during working hours. We thought what best idea to make a product that is truly multifunctional and yet give them some privacy during working hours - hence the emergence of the HQ. We wanted a desk that ticks all the boxes in terms of a work office set up but also great for evenings for dining.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Multifunctional table that can be used as a dining table and also a multi person office desk with a social distancing barrier/panel - flat pack and entirely assembled like Lego with no screws needed. Magnetic paint for notes and the material used is eco friendly.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The HQ accommodates multi workers with a removal separator, it has grooves to fit supplies, a storage system, space for all those pesky cords and it’s coated in a space-age magnetic paint so notes never blow away. Then when work is done (hooray), the HQ sits 6 people, maybe 8 depending on your distancing strategy. Compact enough for condos, easy to assemble, and affordable for all. Great colors, awesome features, and an understanding of the modern world, where work and life are beautifully blurred as one.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in September 2020 in Toronto.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Furniture Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
We are using ecofriendly MDF alternative Ecoboard, also known as Wheatboard, the next generation of MDF fiber board. It is completely environmentally friendly. Ecoboard is made of 100% high-quality natural wheat straw, not wood. It is comprised of agricultural fibers that are left-over after harvests, by-product that is usually disposed of. The assembly is tung and groove (interlocking) method to allow for easy home assembly. CNC cutting is used for the grooves/design pattern. This product does not use any screws and the paint on the screen/panel is magnetic and ecofriendly so that you can put your notes up etc. We particularly liked the idea of old school carpentry ( similar to dove tail detailing) and the practicality of the multifunctional features that it has. There are storage space within the table which allows for office stationaries such as pens, pencil, paper clips, and the cords for the computers and phones are neatly tucked away within the cut out hole.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Table dimensions 70”w x 40”d x 30”h (1778mm x 1016mm x 762mm) Overall package dimensions 70”w x 40”x 8,5”h (1778mm x 1016mm x 216mm)

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
In a world where home sizes were already dwindling and our ideas of working and living have been constantly redefined, the boundaries between work and life were drastically altered by the pandemic. Work/Life has a whole new meaning. Stuck at home, so many unknowns, living/working all in the same space. If ever there was a time for good fun design, it’s now. We decided to design a multifunctional table for smaller homes so that their space is not cluttered and wanted to give the feel of a well made product, ecofriendly, affordable and yet design focused. We used very simple design elements with easy installation assembly and at a price that is affordable.

CHALLENGE:
The hardest is actually spraying the magnetic paint in an ombre look.
