Designer: Leon Ransmeier
Highly considered in shape, proportion, and scale, the AGL Table minimizes material usage—an approach that draws from the efficiencies of aeronautical design. Many size and material options make it suitable for use as a dining table or a conference table, or any gathering place in need of an elegant surface.
Inviting and intelligent, Leon Ransmeier's AGL Table exemplifies the Herman Miller Collection's intent to provide newly commissioned designs with dynamic performance and timeless quality.
"The table edge shape is about making people,
comfortable, physically and socially."
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 table.
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. AGL Tables are made of nearly 60 percent recycled content.
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.
