Symposia tables contribute to the meeting. They function intelligently and with features that add value. Tables are offered with removable sections to seat additional guests when needed, to allow a speaker to present from the center of the table and to host different groups of thinkers in the same room by adding or subtracting a section of the table. The pass through door allows the cleaning crew to vacuum the center of the open table or retrieve errant papers, while a pencil ledge prevents those errant papers from falling off the table surface. Luxurious legroom is achieved without projecting panels so thinkers can work comfortably longer, or work closer together without hardware in the way.
