cerebro

Cerebro is a new workplace technology concept that passively connects and maintains comfortable lighting levels and monitor eye heights when using three common workplace products – a height-adjustable table, task light and display monitor arm. Cerebro integrates the abilities of these products to provide visual comfort and create a new ergonomic experience.

Adjustable work tools such as sit/stand stations optimize the user experience while working. The seated work posture is the primary focus of most adjustments made. However, when using heightadjustable tables, task lighting and monitor arms, they require secondary adjustment when moving from the seated to standing work posture. Cerebro passively connects and adjusts these work tools. Cerebro has multiple settings to accommodate as many user sizes and preferences as possible.

sanna lightbar with ic

With Sanna Lightbar IC (Integrated Cerebro), the user establishes their preference for the amount of light they want on their worksurface and sets this value using Lumistat™. Lumistat acts as a thermostat for percentage of light output of the lightbar. Sanna Lightbar senses the amount of ambient light and provides the required amount of light output to match the amount selected using Lumistat. As the workstation gets closer to, or further away from, overhead lighting via sit/ stand working, the Lumistat value will be maintained as the Lightbar automatically adjusts light output to provide a consistent visual user experience. complements

swerv monitor arm with ic

Swerv Monitor Arm IC (Integrated Cerebro) is designed to be used with a Teknion electric heightadjustable table, built-in or wall unit that uses a Linak electric linear actuator system inside. Using a Teknion-specific custom digital switch, the user sets their “delta” – the difference in eye to typing height between seated and standing – then the monitor arm will automatically adjust this delta when transitioning between seated and standing work.

hab navigate

As the sit/stand market continues to gain momentum, Teknion is expanding its Height-Adjustable Bench product line to include a Navigate-based offering. The same modern design, soft edges and new materials found in the Built-In and Freestanding versions of Navigate are used throughout HAB Navigate. Highlighted by the introduction of Double-Sided and 120-Degree benches, HAB Navigate focuses on compatibility, shared components and the ability to mix-and-match frame styles throughout a run. End of Run Screens provide enhanced privacy, while the Wire Channel with vertical-facing electrical access offers enhanced capacity.

tek booth

Booth-like enclosures have become popular in today’s office environments, providing a shared place for occasional, short-duration retreat from the open plan. Teknion has responded to this trend with Tek Booth − a comfortable, ventilated, private environment in which to make a quick phone or video call, or to spend a short period on focused work. Tek Booth’s combination of acoustic privacy, fine-tuned interiors and extensive material and finish options set it apart.

acoustic privacy

Tek Booth features a sound-absorbing interior with a sound-blocking exterior. A 10mm framed glass door affords an excellent acoustic barrier in conjunction with acoustic seals and adjustable bottom seal. Other door attributes include a magnetic latch, plus soft-close and hold-open features. Monolithic left and right side fascias finished in laminate, wood or magnetic back-painted glass block sound transfer while providing visual privacy. A 6mm double-glass fascia offered in clear or frosted blocks sound transfer from the exterior. 

fine-tuned interior

When the user enters the booth, an occupancy sensor activates the three-step dimmable LED task light. Ventilation, provided by a pair of quiet fans integrated into an acoustic micro-perforated ceiling, is also sensor-activated. The fans work in tandem with a base fascia that enables air exchange.

The Tek Booth interior features acoustic tackboards, and a bar-height worksurface ideal for laptops, tablets and phones. The worksurface is angled to maximize usable surface area in a small interior. A bag hook on the surface underside is ideal for hanging bags, purses and knapsacks. Power is accessible via base and ceiling feed options. Stools, optional, are available from Teknion and Studio TK.

material and finish options

Tek Booth is offered in two versions − Preconfigured and Configurable. Simple to specify, the Preconfigured version is offered in nine pre-determined finish options that provide a uniform aesthetic.

Tek Booth provides a virtually unmatched array of interior and exterior finish options to accommodate any interior, from young and hip startups to more traditional business environments interested in dabbling in today’s less formal ways of working.

laminates / metal paint category updates

Fresh new materiality trends have inspired coordinated introductions to Teknion’s Foundation, Source Laminate and Foundation Metal Paint categories.

Raw, untamed beauty and authenticity inspired three new wood laminate designs − Ivory Birch, Coastal Elm and Provincial Oak. The wood laminates hold overtones of natural greyed colorations.  They include a wood grain texture exactly matched in HPL (HighPressure Laminate) and TFL (Thermally Fused Laminate) for a perfect mixed-application use in furniture.

Two solid color laminates − Atrium White and Soft Gris – have been added to the Foundation and Source laminate categories. Both are influenced by the current trend to reference the comfort of domestic and hospitality environments. They coordinate well with the new wood laminates, as both have foundational harmonized tones.

atrium white 

A bright warm white that includes a matching new Foundation Metal paint coordinate, for suiting or as a complimentary with new and existing finishes.

soft gris 

This laminate, already a Foundation Metal paint, introduces a complementary mid-value grey to the portfolio. 

foundry onyx 

is a new black Foundation category Metal Paint with texture. It was inspired by the interest in the craft and maker movement. 

Together, these new material and finish introductions offer a sensually heightened, visual and tactile experience.

The Color Coordinator Tool is a fun, playful and interactive tool created to help visualize how colors, patterns and materials work and play together. Offered in all standard paint colors – Foundation, Accent and Mica – the color coordinator assists with curating palettes by switching out 4- x 4-inch (10 x 10cm) finish samples. 
Color coordinates can be ordered from MDC (Marketing Distribution Center) in individual colors or as a complete set.

havn seating

Havn is a Scandinavian-inspired seating collection comprising a winged lounge chair and settee. In Danish, “havn” means harbor, suggesting that this lounge chair is a good place to “dock” during the day with a coffee or a book. It’s a retreat from the norms of everyday work. 

Havn enables open lounge settings, or focused work with its high back. A highly sculptural back that nestles in the craft-oriented frame somewhat “pinches” it together to make the upper form. The back is wrapped organically within the wooden frame, surrounding a soft bolster pillow for comfort. The curved wooden frame cradles the upholstered seat with a carefully crafted void in the rear that makes it visually stunning. 

The duo of Flemming Busk and Stephan Hertzog, founders of Busk+Hertzog, designed Havn

clip seating

Clip is a versatile seating option designed by the Swedish architectural partnership Claesson Koivisto Rune

Clip was inspired by the common hair band used on the head. Visually, it creates the curvature of the back with the clip. Designed for Studio TK, the chair’s rounded aesthetic is accentuated by crisp, clean stitching. Clip features a wide range of colors that create a beautiful hospitality-type moment with the use of a more neutral color, or a more iconic moment with an interesting pop of color. 

Clip can be specified in five-star caster, four-leg in metal, four-leg in wood, and in pedestal cross-base options to suit a host of commercial settings. Bases are finished in polished and painted aluminum, as well as in a wood option available in five colors.

freehand occasional tables

Freehand occasional tables were designed around the free-flowing pencil of an artist. The inspiration is the juxtaposition of the industrial process of extruding aluminum to these forms that are organic and imperfect, and flow from one piece to the next.

Though not perfectly symmetrical, table sides fit together to form a number of geometric shapes that can then be finished with tabletop surfaces. Sides are available in two shapes and three sizes. Finishes include five water-based lacquer and 16 paint options. Tabletops are available in leather, felt, linoleum and glass. The finishes narrative extends from a monochromatic look that’s more hospitality-focused, to the felt and leather tops with a pop of color that tells more of a craft story. Freehand’s breadth of options allows users and designers to customize to suit their project needs. Designed by the London-based studio PearsonLloyd, Freehand tables assemble easily.
