Originally designed with FACT for the Salina Art Center in Salina, Kansas, the PenTables are a modular set of asymmetric 5-sided tables based on a pentagonal tiling system. The PenTables reinterpret the collaborative and flexible table. Used individually, it is an unusual 5-sided table; grouped together the tables open up endless possibility. The tables can be composed in a variety of arrangements to support a multitude of social situations, from art classes to community meetings to large dinners. Made of welded steel with a powder-coated finish, legs attach to the top with hidden fasteners. The tables rest atop total-lock casters with non-marking wheels. The original table prototypes were built by FACT for the Salina Art Center, Salina Kansas, with steel and MDF parts fabricated by Cornhusker State Industries, the Nebraska State Prison shops.
