Teknion Corporation today announced the official opening of its redesigned showroom in Bangalore, India.
"Our new Bangalore showroom provides the perfect platform to showcase our design and manufacturing capabilities, while demonstrating our understanding of evolving workplace concepts," said Terry McAllister, President, International Markets, Teknion. "It is also an ideal venue for us to extend our legacy as a knowledge leader internationally, while continuing to build dialog with local designers, architects, facilities managers and customers."
The ground floor explores the breadth of Teknion and Teknion Studio portfolios through settings typical of today’s working styles – a conference room with the latest technology, manager’s cabin or private office, and a finishes area for reviewing surface materials, including the latest from Teknion Textiles. An "in-between" space serves as a touchpoint for non-resident workers, a haven for short-term, spontaneous interaction, or as a more traditional waiting area. The socialization spaces and chair wall feature products from Teknion Studio and Softspace, respectively. Teknion’s architectural wall products define various spaces.
The mezzanine encompasses a piazza concept at the center of the space, encouraging interaction and the sharing of services. Dedicated worksettings – for employees who usually work in the office as part of a team or process – contrast with shared settings, for those who regularly work outside the office. Everyone has access to the Community Center to post messages and collect mail, and to make use of their personal lockers and the office service area.
The 320 m² (3,450 square feet) space was redesigned by Ernest P. Greer, Principal of the Hong Kong-based consultancy g+, in conjunction with Teknion. Greer also designed Teknion’s international design center in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. In addition to the main Bangalore showroom, which opened a decade ago, Teknion operates a second showroom in India, in Gurgaon, Haryana.
"We redesigned the Bangalore space to create customer experiences that communicate Teknion’s international design expertise, regional business competencies and achievements in India so that, together, we can best serve our customers' workplace challenges today, and in the future," said McAllister.
The showroom is located at: Unit #G8-9, Red Cross Bhavan, 26 Race Course Road, Bangalore 560001 India. To book a tour, please call 91.80.4152.7600/01/02.
