At NeoCon 2013 – just around the corner – Stylex will be introducing Share, a modular, work-lounge system offering serious flexibility, design, and the high level of craftsmanship synonymous with the brand. Neither overly formal nor relaxed, the line combines task and lounge height seating surfaces in a seamless fashion appropriate for any environment where multifunction use is critical.
Stylex’s in-house design team worked closely with a group of top specifiers to create Share, a collection that truly responds to changing market needs. Share’s versatile configurations and flexible, tech-friendly charging stations make it an ideal seating solution for a wide range of contract settings.
Notes Stylex president John Golden, “With Share, we’ve built a truly comprehensive and multi-tasking modular lounge system. By conferring with a team of leading architects and designers throughout the product development process, we are confident it has all the features and functionality users might want. The need for inviting spaces where teams can meet, recharge, and exchange ideas is growing as office environments adapt to changing workforce patterns and requirements.”
With a soft curvilinear aesthetic, Share comprises a well-organized kit of parts to support a wide variety of functions: single and double units; back-mounted panels; 90º and 120º corner units; benches; and knee-wall units. Because each of the basic units is available in both task (18”) and lounge (16”) heights that can be easily intermixed, Share provides flexible support for people who find it inconvenient to sit on or get up from a lower surface. The two heights also encourage mixing dining with casual work and conferencing. Share’s privacy panels are novel in that they permit some visual and aural feedback between sections, but not so much that the feeling of privacy is impaired.
For added style, Share is available with waterline upholstery, in which the designer can specify two different fabric colors (for the upper and lower components). This simple solution provides an elegant approach to adding visual interest. Two different styles of supporting feet are available: a cylindrical unit with glides and a sculptural, aluminum component that complements Share’s soft, curvilinear aesthetic. The units may be wired to better support the power requirements of users’ digital devices through conveniently located charging stations, a necessity in the modern world.
