Slate & Slate Private Office
Providing an efficient space within open areas, Slate hosts boardroom amenities and simple collaboration within the office. With space division, media support, and concealed storage, Slate promotes communal interactions and helps create a space where people can come together seamlessly. However, Slate isn’t the new product to keep an eye out for—Slate Private Office is. Instead of providing a communal area, Slate Private Office creates a private office space for individuals while still being a conventional meeting space with boardroom amenities, power, and height adjustability.

Originally however, OFS created the Ping-Pong table for show and enjoyment. Following NeoCon, OFS had about 20 requests for the Riff Ping-Pong Table and is now in the process of assessing the probability of producing and selling the table.
