Teknion continues to expand the Zones furniture collection. The focus of the inaugural 2016 Zones launch was on prescribed enclosures. For NeoCon 2017, the focus was lounge furniture, lounge screens, casual tables, easels and lighting – pieces to allow users to creatively assemble custom settings.
The latest Zones products are designed to further promote the Zones concepts of informal productivity, humanity and happiness in the workplace. September products support Workshop, or open-plan collaboration applications, through the launch of new 72-inch-high (183 cm) Screens, Storage, Accessories, Ledge Tables, Laptop Tables and Trolleys. The integration of Zones products within the upStage and District product lines is supported through the launch of Curved Screens and worksurfaces with Canteen legs.
New Screens, Laptop Table, Trolley, Ledge Table, Storage and Accessories support open-plan collaboration for different postures and worksurface heights (lounge to bar), various levels of formality and mobility.
Freestanding 72-inch-high Workshop Screens, and Semi-Suspended Screens in heights of 55 and 72 inches (140 and 183 cm), divide space and create privacy.
The Laptop Table provides flexibility and mobility for users who need to get work done in a casual environment.
The Trolley offers hospitality utility while seamlessly integrating with Zones’ aesthetic and design criteria.
Ledge Tables are intentionally scaled to fit in numerous planning scenarios and to promote close interaction at bar height. They can be easily reconfigured to suit various functions.
storage and accessories
Three types of storage units are available – Media, Service and Compact. Storage units are ideal for Workshop settings to support media and catering needs, and are also suited to conference rooms.
The design intent is to incorporate the Zones aesthetic with systems products, adding a sprinkling of Zones pieces in a casual way. New elements include Wood or Fabric Straight Desk-Edge Screens, Wood or Fabric Curved Desk-Edge Screens, Systems Canteen Table, Semi-Suspended Worksurface for application with upStage, and a Semi-Suspended Worksurface for use with District.
An International electrics program has been added to Zones to support needs in Central and South America, and the Caribbean. It includes accommodations for the Runner, Worksurface and Seating.
