Teknion Corporation today announced the preview of its Altos Landscape wall collection and height-adjustable Altos Desk in showroom #1048 during NeoCon, June 12-14, The Mart, Chicago.
Altos Landscape is a wall collection which is horizontally planned with a functional collection of wall-integrated furniture. This unique combination gives opportunity for layered off-module planning applications that maximize the usable space in an environment, and minimize the necessary cost of architectural product on the floorplate. The collection enabling these efficient planning possibilities is available in a clean landscape aesthetic, and includes both height-adjustable and fixed-height desks, task lighting, storage options, a shelving program and significantly enhanced acoustic capabilities that maximize sound quality.
“As square footage in the office space increases in cost, the value of small-space planning is becoming more important than ever,” said Paul Kruger, Teknion’s Director of Design, Architectural Products. “The Altos Landscape collection addresses this problem by offering wall-integrated planning capabilities that make the most of a smaller environment, while maintaining conventional planning offerings. Planning with the Altos Landscape collection can reduce the necessary footprint of a private office from 100 to 70 square feet (9.3 to 6.5 m²), or the footprint of an enclave from 60 to 35 (5.6 to 3.2 m²). It offers similar planning advantages in larger two- to four-person workspaces, meeting rooms and storefronts.”
Unlike conventional, vertically oriented wall systems, Altos Landscape facilitates off-module planning along the horizontal datum. This increased flexibility in planning gives opportunity for the wall-integrated shelving, storage, lighting and desk offering to be optimized for the environment around it. Altos Landscape fascias are flexible in their type and location. Fascias – Acoustic, Tackable, Whiteboard, Glass, Solid, or Fabric – can be rearranged after installation, or adapted to other types without modifying the interior wall structure.
Altos Landscape collection adds capability to Altos, Teknion’s flagship architectural wall system. Altos was designed to facilitate cost-effective reconfiguration or full relocation, as required. Its unique universal framework allows changes in elevation, dimension, fascia function and finish to maximize the life of the product.
One of the key features of the collection is the Altos Desk. The Altos Desk is the first height-adjustable desk to market that is integrated into a standard 4-inch-thick wall. It offers a fixed- or height-adjustable option, and single- or double-sided capability. The second desk can be easily added after installation of the single-sided desk due to a shared interior mechanism. The clean and integrated design removes visible cables to the floor, and maximizes functional space within an environment. A reaching cantilever eliminates the need for a continuous vertical reveal.
With a height adjustment range of 28 to 44 inches (71 to 112 cm), Altos Desk promotes employee wellness with its ergonomic sit-stand capability, and allows for excellent wheelchair accessibility. Customizable finish alternatives range from wood, laminate, anodized and painted options. Integration into a robust wall system offers enhanced acoustics for privacy, storage, lighting and functional fascias.
In addition to the Altos Landscape wall collection and its height-adjustable Altos Desk, Teknion will also be showing additions to the Zones furniture collection, the Expansion Cityline furniture system and redesigned Nuova Contessa task chair.
