AGL Table Group

Inviting and intelligent, Leon Ransmeier’s AGL Table Group exemplifies Herman Miller’s intent to provide newly commissioned designs with dynamic performance and timeless quality. Highly considered in shape, proportion, and scale, AGL minimizes material usage—an approach that draws from the efficiencies of aeronautical design.

Power needs are addressed in a solution that reflects a contemporary relationship with technology. An optional tray, which includes four simplex receptacles, conveniently pulls out from beneath the top surface and can be added or removed without comprising the visual integrity of the table. Multiple size and material options make it suitable for use in any environment in need of an elegant surface.

Design Story

AGL’s versatility lies in its adaptable form and robust material offerings. Rising 74 cm from the floor, literally “Above Ground Level”, AGL affords a pleasurable space in the home for working or dining, whilst serving as an elegant option for an executive desk or 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 their 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 feel at ease.

AGL’s base is composed of aluminium, 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 aluminium, feature glides that adjust from the top, allowing for easy levelling on uneven surfaces, even after the table is installed.
