Designed by Giancarlo Piretti, the innovative articulating leg of Pirouette creates a leg-within-leg nesting solution unlike any other. As Pirouette's top is raised, the legs articulate. When in use, Pirouette's clean design profile sets it apart from standard nesting tables. Pirouette easily reconfigures and nests for simple storage and adaptability.
Pirouette's unique design accommodates two-sided usage, giving ample leg room to those seated on either side of a table. Pirouette is available in five different top shapes that support both training applications and learning configurations. Pirouette is offered in both fixed and nesting leg styles, in addition to a Collaborative and Training base style. Pirouette's Collaborative base style features legs inset deeper on the table, allowing for usage on all four sides of a rectangular table.
