Tayco Collaborates with Fig40 to Create a new Casegoods Line
Tayco’s newly released collaboration with Toronto industrial design studio, Fig40, demonstrates its steadfast commitment to unveiling progressive designs with Halifax.
The functional and artistic collection offers flexible desking and tables that create a light feel to establish a new office vibe. According to Tayco, every element has been well considered to ensure optimal functionality allowing the company to evolve from the constraints of traditional casegoods.
“The Halifax Collection was a very engaging project to work on. Workplace design is in a state of flux with many interpretations of what a ‘private office’ is and how it can be used. Our challenge was to design a product that can respond to the evolving and uncertain requirements of clients and designers. But we had to do this while remaining relevant to more conventional applications, with a product that can be made efficiently by Tayco at a competitive cost point,” says Lee Fletcher, Partner at Fig40. “Halifax is a system that reinterprets casegoods: It is flexible, with a clear identity and wide scope of application.”
The rise of private and smaller office spaces with a lighter appearance is what lead Tayco and Fig40 to reimagine the look and ability of casegoods.
“Halifax is a strong testament to Tayco’s leadership in setting market trends,” says Kevin Philips, CEO of Tayco. “It demonstrates our passion to enable everyone who works at a Tayco station to be their most productive, in a stylish and comfortable setting.”
“We recognize that work environments have changed amidst the global pandemic. That is why Halifax combines the light scale and highly customizable sheet metal finishes with an array of laminates to afford Halifax a space in every environment whether that be in the office or in your home,” says the company.
