Springboard’s DOURO Collection Borrows Inspiration from Portuguese Vineyards

Springboard Working Surfaces.

Springboard’s DOURO Collection.

Why is it needed?
DOURO is a new collection of vertical and horizontal collaboration inspired by Portugal’s Douro Valley, a picturesque region known for its sloped terrain and winding vineyards. DOURO interprets the valley’s natural textures through honest materials like birchwood and stainless steel, evoking a sense of warmth not typically found in other working surfaces.

Why is it important?
The DOURO product line includes the first horizontal working surface in Springboard’s offerings. Featuring two dry-erase meeting tables and a writable desk, the tools promote collaboration and imagination while offering an efficient solution to space-conscious working and learning environments.They were designed for a variety of commercial and residential spaces including education, offices, healthcare, home offices, and more.

What are the new products?
Springboard’s DOURO line offers the following products.

Dry Erase Meeting Table.
Combining traditional furniture design with a collaboration tool, DOURO Meeting Table allows small groups to share ideas on the same horizontal surface. Topped with a durable melamine resin surface and birchwood trim, the Meeting Table is a blank canvas for analog communication. It’s also supported by curved tubular steel legs that echo the rounded nature of the DOURO Collection. Available in both regular and high-top variations, the tables seat four and two people, respectively, and each come with a center cutout for cable management. DOURO Meeting Table is 720 mm (28”) tall and 2,100 mm wide (83”) while the High Top is 1,080 mm (43”) tall and 1200 mm (47”) wide.
