Locale / Office furniture program

Discipline: Product

The design ambition for the Locale office furniture program is to create a pleasant atmosphere for working collaboratively ˗ in clusters. Open and rounded desks are completely without obstacles of legs so that colleagues can gather round. It is a modular system, yet is not visibly so. Height adjustability works intuitively and effectively with cantilevered surfaces, alongside a mobile collection of adjustable tables, easels and screens that can be rolled around easily. Cable routing is also now much easier to access. Locale has a simple and welcoming outline that makes working more productive and collaborative.

  • DATE OF LAUNCH 2015

  • DEVELOPMENT TIME 25 - 36 months

  • TARGET REGIONS Asia, Australia/Oceania, Europe, North America, South America

  • TARGET GROUPS Consumer / User, Trade / Industry, Public Sector / Government

  • ASSESMENT CRITERIA Aesthetics, Innovation, Usability + Ergonomics

Locale offers a new degree of flexibility for the workplace, combining state-of-the art technology, like highly adjustable work-surface acoustics, with a simple and clean architectural appearance. Using the line as a base module and equipping it with the features required for collaborative work, Locale offers a unique new language for the workplace. This office furniture program is honest and clever: it is an outstanding entry whose every detail has been thoroughly considered.
