USA, 1980s Bruce Burdick for Herman Miller desk or smaller conference table. This iconic postmodern design was named one of the best of 1981 in Industrial Design by TIME magazine. Its unique extruded aluminum beam gives the table a striking open profile. The table's thoughtful design allows cables to be routed along the beam and base assembly. Tops attach to the beams, which are precision-tooled cast aluminum and adjustable via set screws. Steel leg columns are painted black umber; their aluminum bases feature adjustable 1/4-inch glides. Plate-glass tabletops are 5/8-inch thick with polished edges. This sophisticated table is distinctive, highly functional, and endlessly adaptable.   This configuration as a rectangular piece with one half round end could be oriented against a wall with a screen above (for smaller conference room use) or could be used as a desk- floating in a room or with the flat side toward a wall. The depth is 36", so can fit in many rooms where a standard depth conference table would be too large.    CONDITION NOTES: Minor age-appropriate scratches on glass. General scuffs and wear to leveling feet and support columns. Oxidation to aluminum feet and parts. Both end caps on the center beam are new replacement parts from Herman Miller; This table also has new, round 'gripper' pads that have not had the adhesive removed from them yet- awaiting your positioning on the glass (HM parts). This table can be disassembled if desired. PDF manual will be included.    DIMENSIONS: 86" W x 36" D x 29" H; Rectangular glass panel measures 60" x 36"; Half round panel measures 23.5" W x 36" D; both glass panels are 5/8" thickness with radiused corners and pencil polished edges.    About Bruce Burdick Burdick was exposed early on to the industrial dynamics, creative lifestyle, and architectural activity of California.
