Products That Work Wherever You Work
Featuring: Allsteel’s Mural, O6, and Pl
By Jen Levisen
Allsteel unveiled several new products (and award winners at that) at this summer’s NeoCon — all centered around the company’s Evolving Workplace concept.
“We use the phrase ‘The Evolving Workplace’ because it’s clear the past two years have shaken up many of our old ‘truths’ about the purpose, structure, and design of knowledge-worker workplaces,” says Jan Johnson, Vice President, of Workplace Advisory, Allsteel.
In fact, the Allsteel team refers to themselves as “students of the workplace” as they’ve learned and evolved through each client engagement.
“This approach is forcing us to be better researchers, better listeners, and in the long run, better advisors to our clients,” says Andrea Gauss, Director of Client Solutions, HNI Corporation.
Three of the products Allsteel unveiled at NeoCon are Mural, a flexible panel system designed by L.A.-based MASHstudio (a first for the design studio); O6, a sculptural task chair designed by London-based LAYER; and Pli, a task chair designed by the Berlin-based Deisig Design.
Mural – Your Workplace Neighborhood
Mural, winner of NeoCon’s Best of Silver award and an Interior Design HiP award, offers a new way of space planning individual and collaborative zones utilizing a movable base structure that accommodates quick repurposing or full reconfiguration. The result is a system that lets you plan in neighborhoods, with built-in features for a user-friendly vibe and scale. Learn More >
