Modular meeting tables for the multipurpose meeting room
Shape, although often overlooked, is actually an important factor to consider when choosing a boardroom table. A series of informal studies have been done that found that the shape of a company’s conference table had links to productivity.
For example, you may be a company in which there is no fixed or clear leader in meetings. Instead, each team member has an equal amount of power in decision making. For these kinds of meetings a circle shaped table is best, as this promotes the equality of all users in the meeting process.
For a more presentational style the rectangular shaped conference table is best. This serves a leader ship type meeting in which ultimately decisions are made by one person or a few people. A rectangular shape is also good for presentations as one person will be the focal point of the room.
A U-shaped conference table is usually best used for Board of Directors meeting or committee discussions. This encourages interaction between the participants and is also perfect for when there is an audio-visual presentation.
