Allsteel’s Reflect™ and Clubhouse™ Receive 2016 GOOD DESIGN™ Awards for Furniture
Allsteel Inc., a leading office furniture manufacturer, has won 2016 GOOD DESIGN awards in the furniture category for Reflect, a personal seating solution, and Clubhouse, a freestanding structure providing semi-private workspace for small groups. Designed in partnership with Designworks, a BMW Group Company, and HOK Product Design, both award winners are additions to Allsteel’s Gather™ Collection, a comprehensive portfolio of adaptable solutions for today’s collaborative office environment.
Reflect has a generous seat and soft back cushion enclosed by a tall upholstered shell that not only creates privacy in an open-plan office but also signals the occupant’s unavailability. Shielded from the distractions of the workplace, the Reflect user can undertake tasks that require uninterrupted focus, its broad armrest providing a highly functional work surface. But thanks to the swivel base, reconnecting with the wider office is a simple matter of turning to face it.
Clubhouse is a standalone unit comprising soft seating on a low plinth framed with translucent screens. With such optional features as worksurfaces, media walls, console and storage units and electrical integration, Clubhouse functions as a room within a room, providing a self-contained, sequestered space where individuals or small groups, free from the distractions of the open office, can undertake the type of work that requires deep, uninterrupted focus.
