A University Installed This Table To Increase Interactions Among Students

February 4, 2015

Menéndez and Gamonal Arquitectos have designed large meeting/gathering table inspired by an artists palette, for the Classroom Building in the Milan Campus at Oviedo University in Asturias, Spain.


A description from the designers

This project is part of a program at the University of Oviedo, with small interventions in the University buildings, in order to improve relations among students.



It tries to transform spaces for the students with furniture and lighting, creating a place of meeting, for rest, to chat , to work together……


This big table was designed for the main lobby of a classroom building. Is wooden made, with stainless steel legs and suspended lighting from the roof, through a void.


Is inspired by a painting palette. The curving design crates nooks and spaces where students can study and brainstorm.
