Loose fit/Workspace mix
Zones gives people choice and enables access, and at the same time, creates an environment that is visually, mentally and physically stimulating. Zones’ loose fit promotes a healthy level of physical activity that sustains vitality and helps to maintain mental acuity. Concurrently, a combination of desking and systems furniture typologies working in concert with Zones can yield an office landscape that is visually varied and interesting—and thereby, more engaging—as well as providing a more mature response to the ways in which work is evolving. Zones builds a bridge between today’s needs and a workplace that remains essentially a work in progress.
As Teknion looks to developing patterns of work, and the emerging needs and concerns of business, Zones represents a growing attention to how people interact with their surroundings and how environments enhance or compromise human vitality and creativity. In concept and form, Zones is designed to contribute to a workspace that not only attracts, motivates and enables employees to do their work, but that also speaks to the fundamental connection of human, economic and environmental health.
Developed to challenge the dominance of conventional office layouts, Zones creates a landscape less bound by fixed structures, one in which people can freely network, meet, retreat or gather for a presentation or sociable conversation. Each element feels natural and intuitive in application, with a simplicity and neutrality that allows Zones to work in tandem with other furniture typologies. Zones acts as a seamless overlay to the Teknion portfolio, adding another layer to the workspace mix.
Taking a fresh approach to form and function, Zones employs a branched 108-degree angle that acts as a visual language or dna running through the entire collection. Rather than yielding a compressed, high-density environment , the 108-degree angle creates a circulation space around the furniture, one in which it feels easy and natural to move between one zone and another and make a more complete use of space. By using a 108-degree geometry, Zones delivers a welcoming and ergonomic setting with no sharp edges or demarcations.
