The iPad Conference Table


DuPont, which is known for its designer furniture made of Corian fiber, has created a conference table with a futuristic design, integrated with technology for using iPads. With 16 docking stations which help in securing the iPad and preventing the theft of the same, this conference table comes in a variety of shapes and colors depending upon the requirement of the customer. 

Whether it is a video conference or a congregation where one may need to display a presentation to a large audience, the Multi Table is the perfect option to choose from among hi-end conference tables. With its accompanying chairs, it fits very well in office environments which have a modern décor to create a situation where the world could be bought under one roof and the flexibility to multi-task without using too many gadgets.
