In the latest Kinnarps’ Trend Report, the company, together with leading experts within the fields of architecture, design and technology, has identified the workspace trends of the future. Mixing the elements highlighted in the Trend Report with the new products of Kinnarps Group, Nichetto Design Studio has created the visual installation of the “Workplace Wellness” exhibition during 2015 Milan Design Week.
Together with a healthy and refreshing food concept from the food designer Arabeschi di Latte, in the inspiring installation designed by Luca Nichetto, visitors can get an insight into how the workplace of the future will look. Many were the new products from Kinnarps’ brands (Kinnarps, Drabert, MartinStoll, Materia, Skandiform and NC Nordic Care) on display in the exhibition hall in Milan.
In Kinnarps’ new table range Nexus, adaptability and multi-functionality are in focus. The Nexus table range is available as individual desks or as a bench solution to allow users to adjust the table to suit their own needs: it can be used as a flexible space for many, where creative ideas emerge, or more private workspaces can be created by fitting screens between the tables. Through simple adjustments, the table can be adapted to suit most working situations and all types of working environments.
With the new task chair Capella, designed for Kinnarps by Johan Larsvall at Idesign, sitting is all about movement.
Capella has been fitted with Kinnarps’ latest innovation Free Float system, whereby the seat and back move independently of each other, following the natural movement of the user.
The heart of Capella is the innovative FreeMotion™ mechanism, a newly-developed system where tiny, balanced micro-movements in the seat create tiny adjustment, to make the body feel as comfortable as possible.
The chair’s ease of use and simple setting controls makes Capella the perfect chair to use in activity-based environments where it will be used by many different people.
In the Blanket sofa, designed by Front for the brand Materia, the blanket gets to spread out over the entire surface of the furniture. This playful role reversal gives the furniture an entirely unique identity, an identity which is further strengthened by the edge of the blanket having welt piping made of the same fabric as the sofa or from leather. Blanket is a move away from rigid formality towards something that is welcoming and comfortable.
The conference table Hal, designed for Materia by Carl Öjerstam ,is a new visual take on adjustable tables and provides an alternative to conventional T‐leg designs. The design has been adapted for ad‐hoc meetings, offering a smart solution that is expressive as a design without needing to sacrifice the table’s stability. The design is based on the idea that the area covered by the legs adjusts in line with the height. Wheels are fitted to the legs, so when the table is raised, this increases the frame’s load bearing area and provides more stability. Hal comes with either a round or rectangular table top.
The Deli chair, designed by Thomas Pedersen for the brand Skandiform and winner of the prestigious “Red Dot Award 2014″ for its product design, offers the kind of relaxation more usually associated with an armchair. It’s often described as something of a happy hybrid – design and comfort that invite the user to linger a little longer. Now the addition of yet another underframe expands the chair’s potential and extends its areas of use even further.
The brand Drabert presented Entrada successor, Entrada II, designed like its predecessor by Daniel Figueroa.
The task chair has been given new, even more user friendly controls and an updated appearance, tailored for the modern workplace! With its well thought ergonomics, Entrada II is shaped to give the best possible comfort. The seat is both height and depth adjustable to give optimal support for back, leg and thighs. As it is so user-friendly, Entrada II is also ideal in activity based working environments where different people in different types of working environments can easily use it.
