"The table is an underrated piece of furniture," said Hayon. "In my eyes, the table is the heart of the home, the heart of the office, the heart of the restaurant."

"At the table, we share our greatest joys and sorrows, and at the end of the day, some of the greatest things in life happens at the table."

The result is a desk that doesn't conform to any one stereotype in table design.

"It's neither square, round nor oval but something in between, which supports dialogue and intimacy," said Hayon.

The Analog's elongated shape features four wooden legs arranged at diagonals to allow more people to fit around the desk at the same time. The table top meets the legs vertically, connecting the table with its support.

"I have worked a lot with the shape of the table and the way in which it is simultaneously heavy and light, so that it exudes quality,"  said Hayon.

The Analog comes as either a six or eight person table. There are five different table top and leg colours and finishes, including oak and walnut veneer.

    PR-speak aside, I’m a big fan. I love the shapes of the tops. It definitely makes for a better shared experience at the table.
