Mix, Pitch, Venue + Switch from Claridge Products

contract office marketing

Claridge Products is proud to present four new and distinctive product lines which were featured at NeoCon 2019.

Together with their design partners, Q design, Claridge is fully committed to creating innovative design driven contract furniture that facilitate the effortless expression of inspired communication – from the boardroom to the classroom and anywhere thinkers and problem solvers meet to exchange ideas.

MIX –

The new MIX line features highly customizable, mixed material dry erase mobile markerboards and tackboards.  Those who design for collaborative communication environments now have more flexibility to achieve their desired aesthetic.

Pitch –

The inspiration for the Pitch board grew from the aesthetic of free-standing pivot mirrors. This lighter scale, residential form lends itself well to the interiors we see or design.  A variety of finish options allow this family of wall-mounted and mobile boards to thrive in a wide range of environments.

Venue –

Venue seamlessly integrates into the open plan, collaborative team space, and the built environment with its slim architecture and mindful details. Laminate, textiles, or writable surfaces allow complete customization whether you’re looking for dividers or mobile boards. The timeless design creates adaptive communication boards that compliment existing or new workspaces.

Switch –

Switch was designed to be agile in the ever-changing work and learning environment.  The simple form of the mobile legs allow for in-line nesting, taking up a small footprint when being stowed away. Add a pop of color with the integrated marker tray, or layer wall-mounted boards with magnetic tackable pads, arranged anywhere on the surface.

Need help finding the best writing surface and visual display products for your environment?  Reach out to our team!  We can’t wait to help!

Chameleon by DARRAN Furniture

contract office marketing

Chameleon is a curated collection of desking, simple storage and screen solutions that are easy to configure and personalize from a hand-selected palette of wood, felt and acoustic materials.

Like its namesake, Chameleon captures the essence of adaptability. Chameleon is suited to outfit an entire workplace, from making impressions in executive suites to modernizing mobile work terminals. Mark Müller’s design makes the most of your space by supporting private office, touch down stations, meeting areas and cafes with a coordinating selection of seating options. Rounded corners, organic shapes and cushions perfectly balance comfort and productivity.

The strength of Chameleon is that it can be all things depending on specification. The system is configured with desks and storage to connect tasking and teaming. Table desks with solid wood legs are available in a range of fixed heights that gang together or overlaid on credenzas of varying elevations. Stackable units and lean lines create levels of elevation while subtly defining personal space.

Divide space with mobile screens that accommodate a range of colors and materials from markerboards to tackable fabrics.  Mobile pedestals boast a playful, enlarged caster and unique shapes and colors to add flare to mixed solutions outside of the Chameleon family, as well.  Bring the whole space together with shelving that can be as open or private as needed.

Find the price list, spec sheet, Revit symbols and more on the DARRAN Furniture website!  Need specification help?  Give us a call and we will engage DARRAN’s design team to customize Chameleon for your space!

Trinity Furniture’s Latest

contract office marketing

Trinity Furniture has introduced several new products this year!  Bringing their product offering full circle, they now span from traditional and transitional into contemporary office furniture.  When considering what to bring to market, the Trinity Furniture team stayed true to their commitment to their mission and values, incorporating environmental sustainability into well-designed furniture in the most responsible way possible.

Savoye

Inspired by the Le Corbusier’s Villa Savoye located just outside of Paris, France, the Savoye Collection embodies many of those same modern architectural characteristics.  The design portrays a delicate floating body supported by an almost vanishing base.  Both lounge + table units consist of simplified, clean forms scaled and proportioned to give a light, very spatial and minimalistic aesthetic.  This collection consists of club chairs, start-center-corner-end, sofa and both off modular and free standing table pieces.

Vroom

Seemingly plucked from the interior of an exotic race car, Trinity’s new Vroom seating is visually stimulating and impeccably tailored. Its cradle of molded high resilient polyurethane foam is reinforced with structural steel for superior comfort and all-day seating support. A wide selection of standard metal and wood bases are available to suit any seating requirement.

Ziggy

Ziggy continues our race toward new products with a cute bucket-style seat.  The new Ziggy chair is thoughtfully designed with the same stunning tailoring and attention to detail as it’s friend Vroom.  A wide selection of standard metal and wood bases are available to suit any seating requirement.  Specify this chair with a cleanout or without.

Vroom is a recent big winner with Contract Office Marketing with over 25 chairs on the project!  Why did Vroom beat out the competition?  Comfort, customization and price point!  We have both Ziggy and Vroom available as samples in our showroom.

Learn more about these new products and more by visiting the Trinity Furniture website!
