Earlier this year we met with Dezeen editor-at-large Amy Frearson to discuss the extensive primary research that underpins CoLab, our next generation learning and work collection for Senator.

While discussing the circular principles of design-for-repair and reversible fixings present within the collection, we began to think about how the material construction of many design classics does not fit with our contemporary understanding of sustainable design.

 

We collected our thoughts in a short statement that was published to Dezeen a few weeks ago. The directed responses we have received from within the industry have been reassuring. The tides are turning.

CoLab NeoCon Gold

CoLab NeoCon Gold
13-07-2023

In the past few months at Clerkenwell Design Week and NeoCon we previewed and launched CoLab, our new furniture system for next generation learning and work. We were pleased that the architecture and design community took great interest in this collection that has resulted from primary research into global pedagogy trends.

 

It was a bonus to win two Best of NeoCon 23 Awards: Gold for Education Solutions and Silver for Collections for Collaboration.

 

Jurors noted, “In a market where we’ve seen everything, CoLab provides real opportunities for comfortable and intuitive interaction. There are so many thoughtful details built into the design, including integrated standing height tables that double as lecterns, power modules, spacing between cushions to allow spills to pass through, flexibility in reconfiguration, sustainable components that can be reused and recycled, and durable options that hold up in high-use environments.”

As the landscape of work and hospitality environments continues to merge and blur, we reimagined our Famiglia collection to support the transformation we foresee. This subtle update improves comfort and refines silhouettes across six completely new low, mid, high-back and lounge chairs, as well as light work tables. It is also redesigned for repair.

 

This enduring design for Allermuir will continue to provide new ways of working, interacting and relaxing.

SixE goes full circle

SixE goes full circle
29-09-2023

Back in 2010, Howe invited us to design a new plastic chair programme. We worked tirelessly to design a form that did not require glass fibre for stiffness, ensuring we avoided composite materials so that the chair could be recycled if it reached end-of-life.

Today, we are proud to relaunch SixE with Howe using non-virgin recycled plastic, making this product truly circular. Our ambitions in 2010 have come full circle.
