Alberto Meda’s and Vitra’s aim when developing the ArchiMeda was to design a simple, well-conceived managers’ desk to simplify and enrich complicated everyday life. ArchiMeda is a height-adjustable desk that brings a healthy mix of sitting and standing options into the executive office. The large, fine wood veneered table top rests on the scissor lifting mechanism, the height of which can be adjusted electronically. ArchiMeda is suited for use as a table for meetings conducted with participants either seated or – especially when reviewing documents and plans – standing.
