The VWork collection was born from parent product VTable, a domestic dining table originally designed in 1993. It is named after its distinctive V-shaped joinery that uses the inherent strength of the V section to both support and stabilise the top, as well as providing means by which to attach the legs. After a conversation with Modus about need for a wood-based table system for workplaces, Pengelly proposed a modular system of tables that further utilises the V section to support cables and associated sockets for charging and running computer equipment and mobile devices. As well as working very well functionally, the V and leg components convey a sense of longevity and craftsmanship. The natural materials offer a less formal solution for the workplace and humanise the environment. The collection includes the Work Desk which has a variety of accessories, the Hot Desk designed to suit a more temporary style of working, the Standing Desk available in three lengths, and the VWork benches which are constructed in exactly the same way as the tables.
