We see that work environments with natural elements lead to a higher level of well being and productivity, which is an important consideration for business in terms of responsibility to its employees and its own bottom line.  By embracing biophilic design, Honey workspace furniture addresses the needs of individual users, their varied work styles, privacy and of course, well-being.

The space-efficient 120 degree planning grid creates a flowing geometry that meanders through a room with endless possibilities for configuring the workspace.  Honey panels are soft and rounded with compound curved surfaces.  The panel height of 55″ gives the right amount of visual and sound privacy without overwhelming the space.

Honey offers open and closed collaborative zones, meeting spaces, lounge, or desking in sitting, standing, or height adjustable, adapting to the way you work.  In addition to work space, Honey has a collection of storage and lounge products that compliment the soft lines of the workspace furniture.  Thoughtfully designed, this collection integrates an open base with height adjustable bases integrated into the panel promoting a light feeling and tidy lines.

It sounds like a tongue twister:  Social Distance with Stylish Screens from Symmetry!  Try saying that three times fast!  Symmetry has continued to polish up their screen collections following their launch of the acrlic Sector Screens, with the redesign and refinement of their privacy screens.  Mix and match fabric-covered Motif and white board Doodle screens to add texture and function to any office, as well as privacy and style.

Motif

Motif allows for customized privacy with durable fabrics designed to heal from pins, thumbtacks and more.  Integrate privacy and protection with bleach-cleanable textiles, helping to protect against COVID-19.  The eco-friendly design features single-piece construction with a HexaCore honeycomb center creating rigidity with less weight.

Height options include 12, 18 and 24 inches. Need to include modesty?  The midway and height adjustable mounts can be 30 inches high with a 6 inch+ modesty.  Width options range from 17-24 inches in 6-inch increments.

Integrate your favorite SitOnIt patterns, including:
Dice, Dynamic, Huntington, Laguna, Malibu, Monterey, Motion, Newport, Pop, Spice, Strive + Venice.

Need a bleach-cleanable fabric divider? We recommend the following:
Cover Cloth, Faux Felt or Synergy by Momentum Textiles

*If you plan to clean with bleach, we recommend you do not tack those surfaces.

All of the above materials can also be added to the Symmetry mobile pedestals to coordainate your whole space from seating to screens.

Doodle

Doodle is the playful partner to Motif, with the same height, width and mount options but in markboard form. This screen stands up to endless scribbles while maximizing privacy and providing a protective barrier.

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.
