Designed in collaboration with Gensler as Product Design Consultant
ATELIER is a highly flexible furniture solution created in response to situations of constant flux within the workplace. In response to current trends in office culture, Atelier successfully combines numerous space-related functions, offering functional durability and economic efficiency.
The modular structure easily adapts to technological advances and to the demands of a constantly-evolving world of work.
The extremely innovative system comprises four main elements: a configurable workstation, an equally configurable 105-cm-high multifunctional collaboration table, a family of dynamic storage units complete with mobile pinboard and a bookcase/storage system.
The collaboration tables and touchdown tables speak of configurability in the workplace, but above all of shared work, multifunctionality, informality at work, teamwork and efficiency. They create immersive experiences and are all about innovative ideas and change, which does not take place on its own, and needs to be encouraged and facilitated.
The mobile pinboard makes it possible to hold meetings anywhere, and when required, to detach the panel, complete with notes or a moodboard of fabrics, and take it to a different workstation, or hang it on the bookcase for further sharing. Keeping these mobile workers constantly connected, with elegant cable management solutions on all tables, means they are more satisfied and productive, and also that they can shift between different working spaces, from collaborative to social spaces, from open plan to more private areas.
The strongly industrial and experimental nature of ATELIER reflects the attitude of companies that define themselves in terms of constant change, and emphasises the power of office branding as a key part of the creative process in collaborative offices. It may seem like an unusual priority, but in reality it helps to expand the workplace culture, reassuring staff members of their value within the organization and of the importance of teamwork.
Atelier main features - flexibility and team working - represent an innovative approach in office space planning and have brought to the assignement of many prizes: Trophée de l'Innovation 2019 prize during Workspace Expo 2019 exhibition in Paris, Architectural Record’s Products Award 2019, International Design Awards IDA 2019, Silver category, German Design Award 2021.
