AGL Table Group

AGL Table Group

Inviting and intelligent, Leon Ransmeier’s AGL Table Group exemplifies the Herman Miller Collection’s intent to provide newly commissioned designs with dynamic performance and timeless quality. Highly considered in shape, proportion, and scale, the AGL Table Group minimizes material usage—an approach that draws from the efficiencies of aeronautical design. Many size and material options make it suitable for use in any environment in need of an elegant surface.

Design Story

Versatile Design

AGL’s versatility lies in its adaptable form and robust material
offerings. Rising 29 inches from the floor—literally “Above
Ground Level”—AGL affords a pleasurable space in the home for
working or dining, serves as an elegant option for an executive
desk, or as a large dining, meeting, or conference surface.

The elemental shapes of AGL’s surfaces take on a warming
presence with a choice of veneer in white ash, Santos
Palisander, walnut, or ebony. Highly durable Formcoat in white
or folkstone grey completes the surface options. AGL tables in
all its surface and size variations are intended for indoor use.

Anticipating Guests’ Needs

AGL excels as a surface for hosting people, whether they’re
dining, meeting, or working together. To make people
comfortable, the table’s designer incorporated a subtly tapered
edge around the perimeter of every AGL surface. Set at a
welcoming angle, the edge invites collaboration and encourages
people to be at ease.

AGL’s base is composed of aluminum, chosen for its lightness
and because it permits a sculptural form that meets the strength
requirements for large surfaces. Bases, available in white,
black, or polished aluminum, feature glides that adjust from the
top, allowing for easy leveling on uneven surfaces, even after the
table is installed.

“The AGL Table Group needs to function—physically and
aesthetically—in today’s world, in response to contemporary
needs, and it needs to function similarly in the future in ways that
are unpredictable. In this way the table is designed to be open
and enabled.” – Leon Ransmeier
