As one of the new features at the newly renovated Cooper Hewitt, visitors will find a stunning custom reception desk designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro and fabricated by SITU Fabrication.  The desk has three integrated work stations and is able to divide into two sections to be easily stowed away for flexible lobby programming.  The desk has an oak veneered plywood base and is capped with thermoformed solid surface Corian.  The white Corian top forms the work surface with monitor housings and rises up to create a greeting surface, brochure pocket and an accentuated overlap detail at the seam.
