“Under the terms of our new partnership with Punt, Teknion is manufacturing and offering four of Punt's wood products in North America,” said Ami Kvas, Senior Product Manager, Casegoods & New Initiatives, Teknion. “Rich in design culture, Punt embraces a new kind of sophistication in the quality and combination of materials used, along with precise styling in its contemporary furniture. Our level of attention and skill align perfectly with the values of Punt.”
“We recognize Teknion as the ideal partner, and fully capable of producing our signature wood products centered around Art and Design,” said Mariano Soria, CEO, Punt Mobles. “Teknion shares with us the same high level of care required to execute Punt’s design details and level of skilled craftsmanship.”
Punt furnishings are being offered as a classic mid-century collection appropriate for private offices and meeting spaces where a warm, residential and sophisticated ambience is desired. They can also be showcased alongside other Teknion products as signature designer elements to personalize, complement or transition any work environment.
Literatura Open Shelf System by Vicent Martinez
Literatura is an open bookcase featuring a small, distinctive storage unit on casters ideal for displaying and storing books, works of art, music, photos, souvenirs and what-nots. Literatura integrates with all kinds of architecture and interior design works. This “light, balanced collection of cubby holes” can also be used as a room partition.
Mava Wood Guest Chair by Stephanie Jasny
Mava is an elegant wooden armchair with a solid oak or walnut wood frame. Its light appearance makes it the perfect guest chair by bringing a unique element of warmth to smaller spaces. Mava is inspired by the image of original wooden clothes-pegs from the early 20th century. Its legs are similarly slotted to hold the backrest, which has a wide, open form that seems to fly in the wind like a piece of laundry.
Mitis Table by Mario Ruiz
Mitis, from the Latin word for lightweight, is a collection of rectangular wood tables. Mitis is available with an optional glass top that offers a natural, essential and consistent expression. Mitis offers a solid appearance and exquisite detail both in the tabletop and trestle-like grooved legs. Tables are available in three heights and widths to accommodate both private offices and large meeting rooms.
Stockholm Credenza by Mario Ruiz
Stockholm conveys a new kind of sophistication with its combination of wood and metal materials. For a lighter appearance there is a metal base. Or, Stockholm can be mounted to the wall. The credenza doors and drawers are without handles, showcasing the beauty and natural appearance of the wood grain as it flows across the storage fronts. Stockholm is finished with an elegant anodized aluminum top, which features precise styling and balanced radii.
The Punt furnishings will be crafted at the high-end Teknion Solutions facility in Calgary, Alberta, providing clients with shorter lead times and a North American shipping address.
In addition to Punt products, Teknion will also be featuring the following new products at NeoCon: Banqs sofas with screens, tables and accessories designed by PearsonLloyd; tn Storage & Accessories collection by Toan Nguyen, Swerv Monitor Arm, Tabletop Screens, Infinity Screens and Cerebro adjustable desk/monitor arm/lamp concept.
