Detail is everything. It is why the Tempest flips, rolls and unfolds possibilities like no other table system in the world.
Tempest is the original space-saving folding table system for use in multi-purpose eating, meeting, training and conferencing facilities. Whether you prefer a big conference table, a modular meeting table, a low lounge table or a high bar table, Tempest has the answers.
Its beautiful and rock solid flip-top mechanism is unparalleled, and the elegant elliptical leg-design with concealed castors makes Tempest easy for just one person to “wheel-barrow” around swiftly and effortlessly.
"We believe that design is an intermediate body – a link that appears in the tension between art and engineering, manufacturer and user,
tradition and innovation."
Boris Berlin & Poul Christiansen.
Makings of a movement
Since 1928, HOWE has developed beautiful, functional furniture design.
It began with new and innovative solutions to the Waldo Astoria in New York but really took off during World War II with the now legendary,
space-saving Victory table made for
the U.S. Navy submarines.
This continued with the Tempest flip-top table system that took flexible ideas to new lengths in the 1970’s.
To this day both the Victory and the Tempest tables remain benchmarks for quality and multi- functionality and move designers to keep pushing the envelope.
