Workspace Furnishings: Back In The Saddle

The cancellations of trade shows from this year’s calendar of design events has not stopped companies from unveiling new office product to the industry.

Lagunitas Lounge System | Coalesse

Designed by Toan Nguyen, this collection of architectural structures create soft barriers, allowing for safer distancing. The system adapts to changing work styles and shifting postures. Pictured here, the Lagunitas Focus Nook pairs with the rest of the collection for varying degrees of privacy.

Parkdale Table | Spec

This collaborative table comes with either single top, or a split top with a three inch gap. The latter accommodates clip-on power modules throughout the entire length of the table, acting as an integrated channel for wire management, and has the capability to mount table screens and other dividers. Available in three different heights, up to four different widths, and 76 base finish colours.

Attach | Inspec Sandler

This new division of Sandler offers a range of Scandinavian furniture designs targeting the corporate market. One of their newest lines, the legs of this clever table system do not need to be screwed, threaded or twisted on. Extruded aluminum beams and structural extruded aluminum legs are attached to the tabletop and secured by gravity, and can be positioned or repositioned along the mounting beam in numerous configurations with minimal interference to the table.

L1 Task Chair | Allseating

The name for this new ergonomic task chair comes from the L1 lumbar vertebra, clearly signalling its primary focus: back support. An integrated seat slider allows for simple calibration, with two-directional arms for forearm and shoulder comfort.

Swurve | Keilhauer

Designed by Andrew Jones, this is the company’s first ever carbon neutral chair built around an aggressive plan to reduce carbon emissions: from sustainably sourcing materials, and responsible manufacturing, to a carefully thought-through end-of-life and recyclability plan reviewed by third-party Lifecycle Assessment conforming to ISO 14044 with a cradle to gate scope. Where carbon emissions remain, such as during transportation, Keilhauer is investing in carbon reduction and climate change mitigation projects to offset.

Brighton | Integra Seating

Significant upgrades have been made to models in the Alpine Collection, in particular an all-sides clean-out option. With space between the seat, the back and the sides, this feature not only reduces the time needed to clean the seat, but enables more of the entire seat and surrounding surfaces to be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized, since debris can easily fall to the ground without getting lodged within the seat. They are also compliant with the Healthier Hospitals Initiative of Safer Chemicals Challenge.
