Bivi Conference for Eight by Steelcase
Either a casual conference or formal conference ... take this Bivi setting, add up to 8 people with a job to do, and you have yourself a meeting. A very comfortable, well-appointed meeting with a power strip option for the center of the table.When space is at a premium, the genius of this conference table really comes out. Take off one end, stick the table flat against a wall, mount a flatscreen at the square end of the table, and voila, you've got a videoconferencing center. Take off both half round tops and two workers can use the table as their primary workstation. The power cable trough in the center makes plugging in super easy. It's a really smart design. For a productive and open office, this flexible conference table is a smart decision. If you plan to grow in the future, you'll be able to add onto any Bivi setting to make as much work space as you need.

A smart office deserves a smart conference table. A conference table that anticipates employee needs and accommodates technology. A conference table that actually expands and contracts depending upon the requirements of a particular meeting. A conference table that moves, breaks up into smaller pieces, re-integrates only when you need it. A conference table as smart, efficient, and effective as your small business.
The Bivi Collection by Steelcase answers all of those needs and more. Bivi's unique legs are built to accommodate additional worksurfaces, giving your business the freedom to create group desks, conference tables and work stations as large or as small as you need them to be. Steelcase Bivi also features a wide range of attachments that provide the tables with storage. You can attach a shelving and storage unit to the end of the table, or a rounded semi-circle edge. You can integrate a power strip (up to four per table section), or order a desk top with hidden storage compartments at the back of the worksurface. There are smaller storage attachments available as well, for the tabletop or attached to the legs below.
For years, small businesses have needed furniture that works they way they do - fast, efficient, and flexible. The next step in the evolution of the conference table is here. Bivi represents a huge leap forward in the way smart, modern businesses think about their furniture. It shrinks and expands, compactly stows away and re-appears when needed, and is built to accommodate individual as well as collective users. Welcome to the future of the conference table.

The hallmarks of the new office, the modern office, are technology and collaboration. Laptops, smart phones, servers and every other modern marvel of the workforce have a couple of things in common: 1) They are absolutely essential to running a business, and 2) Office furniture is rarely built with them in mind. The Steelcase Bivi Desks, Tables and Accessories are here to change all of that.
The inspiration for the Bivi line was the idea of modular furniture. Modular desks, modular conference tables, modular and open offices. The new workers, the modern technological workers in a small and growing business, are multi-taskers. The new workers consistently do a dozen things at once from and around their desks, using the internet, the smart phone, and their co-workers for support. The new workers are collaborative, able to communicate easily and fluidly not only with their co-workers in the office, but also with colleagues all across the country, and even overseas. The new workers want to create a personalized niche within a larger pattern - express their individual taste while maintaining an overall look in keeping with their company. And they don't like to be hemmed in. For new businesses, none of those things are a problem. But if the workers are using traditional office furniture, every one of them is an unanswered need. The Bivi Tables are the solution.
Bivi Desks are built with three components. Two legs for the base, one flat desk top, and an electronics trough to organize the many cords and devices that festoon the contemporary work desk. The trough forms the back of the desk's base, and the flat desk top simply slides into the grooved sides of the legs. From boxed to built in less than five minutes, the desks are lightweight, easy to move and take apart, and easier still to personalize with a range of appropriate Steelcase accessories. Research has shown that workers are more productive and more communicative when they work on these "bench style" desks. No cubicles, no walls, and total access to their co-workers. All of this is what makes modular furniture so important, and so necessary to the success of a small or growing business.
Of course the Bivi desks couldn't truly be called modular unless they were able to shape shift and adapt in more than one way. One of the most exciting aspects of this furniture line is that it can be so easily and creatively mixed and matched to produce optimum results. The legs of each desk are equipped with grooves and attachment areas that allow and encourage additions. That means you can snap two desks together, facing one another, and create a dual desk. It means four tables can be put together in the same way, creating a conference table that can be built and staffed as quickly as it can be taken apart and turned back into separate desks. There is no limit to how far you can go, or how creative you can be. Four desks, six desks, eight desks, more - these tables are built to be modular, to be the furniture equivalent of your flexible, adaptable, collaborative workforce.
With just a few simple components and a large range of individual attachments and applications, this desking system is the pinnacle of modern modular office furniture. It answers every need of the modern business, and offers the flexibility and adaptability you demand from your business, and your employees.
