Not sure how many people you will be able to fit around your meeting or boardroom table? Here is a quick guide:
How can you work this out?
First calculate the perimeter of the table. As a general rule, each person should have a minimum of 600mm space to give them enough arm and leg room for ease of movement to and from the table. Of course, in some scenarios more space is required and it also depends on the size of chair. For an executive boardroom setting for example, we suggest increasing the space to 800mm.
Let’s break it down, if we take a 3000mm wide by 1200mm deep meeting table for instance, it has a perimeter of 8400mm, so depending on the purpose of the table, we could potentially seat up to 14 people. Another example is a 1500mm diameter table with a perimeter of approximately 4710mm. We would recommend a maximum of 7 people for this size table.
If you need to maximise the number of people around the table without compromising on comfort, choose a more compact chair such as our Zed or Sax chairs, or one without arms such as the Alex of the Gin chair.
