Haven is a collection of work and social tables designed to bring people together intentionally and purposefully. Each table in the collection has been designed to be used in multiple applications, making each table adaptable. The soft lines and circular shapes encourage inclusivity and group-oriented decision making, and makes the entire collection an invitation to organically collaborate.
As the way we work is rapidly changing, workers are getting the flexibility we have long asked for. Yet we still yearn for rich and meaningful real-life interactions. We want to be "We" again.
Haven transforms the workplace into an inclusive social haven for people and ideas to thrive.
Haven reimagines office interactions, recognizing that most work challenges aren't solved in planned ways but rather by means of impromptu conversations in an inclusive work culture.
Haven tables are designed for multiple work modes and settings to fit the needs of many users and preferences throughout the day, month, year, or decade.
Haven is inviting.
Haven's soft corners and circular shapes ensure all ideas and people have a seat at the table. Other touch points that were deliberately designed to invite include moveable table surfaces, neighborhood lighting with 60 W charging ports for laptops and phones, and a foot-bar. Standing height and high-low tables invite serendipitous team interactions.
Haven is adaptable.
Haven is designed for longevity in an era of rapid change. Each table is designed for universality and movability, so that the tables can be useful in multiple work modes and settings.
Haven is simple.
Each table is distilled to its essence, serving its function quietly and intentionally. The distinctive leg profile features a flat front face that blends well with any architecture and a rounded back which softens spaces. The legs touch the floor lightly with their rounded ends, communicating their lightness and encouraging movement.
With the increase in remote and hybrid work, the purpose of the office will be to primarily connect people in various collaborative settings with moments of transition. With Haven furniture solutions people can interact in various purposeful settings:
Increasingly more work happens away from the personal desk. Teamwork requires settings that inspire creative action. Haven's multi-height settings, agile media tables, and rolling work tables provide a sense of agency, inspiring teams to collaborate in new ways.
Haven supports dynamic meeting settings that combine virtual and in-person interactions. Standing height, High-low meeting tables, and tables with integrated video mounts allow you to reimagine meeting spaces to create an active meeting dynamic for the entire team.
A variety of standing or high-low tables with foot-bar and lighting are perfect for shared spaces, co-working, airports, and lobbies.
The Haven Perch, the Haven Bench and Laptop Lounge side table support touch-down moments in between destinations in atriums, corridors, lobbies, micro-kitchens, and outside meeting rooms.
Haven provides a variety of tables perfect for cafe settings which include communal tables, bar-style standing tables, as well as simple round and square shapes for seating.
The Haven line is manufactured in Poulsbo, Washington. Once a fruitful orchard, the company retains and protects the natural beauty on their acreage which includes a salmon-bearing stream, natural wetlands, organic fruit trees, and lush evergreen forests. The company takes their role as stewards very seriously, and this responsibility is paramount to the furniture they design and manufacture. This shows in the way materials and processes are selected and how functional longevity is a key focus in the design and implementation process.
The NAF (No Added Formaldehyde) substrate used in table tops contain 92% recycled industrial by-product from northwest milling operations. The cold-rolled steel used in table bases and brackets is created from recycled auto parts, and all steel is 100% recyclable.
The GREENGUARD-certified laminates are composed of phenolic resin and kraft paper and contain 22% recycled content. Forbo Furniture Linoleum used on table surfaces is made of renewable linseed oil and recycled sawdust.
The factory reclaims sawdust which is compressed into briquettes and used for biofuel. The table tops are made with only nontoxic, water based adhesives that emit low to no VOCs.
Haven Tables are built in an environmentally friendly way that can contribute to LEED points.
All form development and details were highly considered for inclusivity and social settings. And with every detail we asked ourselves "Does this really need to be there?" "Is there a way to reduce material and weight?" The entire Haven line is optimized to minimize waste.
The line contains a few unique features all developed utilizing the same design approach and sensitivity to achieve adaptability, simplicity and inviting settings:
The extensive Haven line is made possible by the modular Integrity Frame, a minimal steel structure with surprising strength and visual lightness. The Integrity Frame supports many table shapes, sizes and heights including oblong, rectangular, and peninsula. It is also available with a drop-down cable tray and discreet cable channel that snaps onto any Haven table leg.
The Haven Neighborhood light is an option on most Haven tables. The dimmable atmospheric light includes 60 watt USB charging ports for laptops and phones, and the auto-off feature saves energy by turning the light off after a set time. Additionally, the lamp's thin and circular profile adds dynamic height to the room's topography without blocking sight-lines.
Planters and Floating Tray
The Haven Planter drops into any table surface while the Floating Tray displays plants or other items above the surface adding visual intrigue and biophilic elements.
High Low and Float Tables
The Haven High Low Tables combine two heights allowing people to choose the setting to match the occasion: High for quick, casual interactions, low for seated work sessions. The high side is easily rotatable, allowing it to be configured on the fly to best fit the needs of the moment. It is perfect for reimagining a conference room setting or moving to a new space. The Haven High Low Float tables provide two table heights in the footprint of a single table.
The Haven Recharge Bench is a versatile upholstered bench that can come with a Neighborhood Lamp, rotating laptop surface, round table, or floating tray. The Recharge Bench is perfect for transitional places, outside meeting rooms, lobbies, and periphery spaces.
The Haven Laptop Lounge provides a comfortable laptop surface for sofas or chairs. The narrow base fits between chair legs while the generous surface has room for a mouse or a coffee.
The Media Panel can turn any Haven table into a video conferencing pod. The fabric-covered privacy screen comes in a circle or square and looks great from any angle, for freestanding or wall applications.
All Haven products are made to order in a wide range of colors, fabrics and surface finishes.
