PRODUCTS: Compile Panel System, Freefit Height Adjustable Desks, Bridges Benching, Swap Tables, Zira and Kip Meeting Tables, Drift, EQ3 and Mazo Lounge Furniture, Factor Task Seating, Lite Guest Chairs, Ballara Bench Seating, Popcorn Stools & FLEXA PRO Heavy Duty Dual Monitor Arms and FlexCharge4CX Desktop Modules
The goal was to provide functional and modern work areas to support four distinct work groups while keeping a cohesive and open look for optimal light and an unobstructed view through the surrounding windows. 30 panel workstations were designed primarily for developers to provide flexibility and ergonomics with both fixed and height adjustable desking, easy charging and power access with desktop modules. Low height panels topped with clear glass were used to provide some separation/protection while maintaining the openness. Benching was used to provide a hoteling area for 6 additional seats. Benching with more substantive storage and privacy screens provided dedicated workspaces for 4 individuals. Additional requirements for this area included new mesh office seating and complementary private office desking. Several meeting and breakout rooms were outfitted with tables and chair in various styles, heights and materials to provide a variety of both formal and relaxed formats for meeting and collaboration.
In choosing finishes, laminates and metals in silvers and grey tones were used to provide a modern and industrial look to the space while pops of bright colours (blues and greens) where used in the light fixtures and seating fabrics to brighten up and invigorate the space.

Planning for a post COVID return to the office for his work-from-home employees, the Managing Director – Canada wanted a new Canadian office environment that was fun, collaborative and complemented the look of their global offices in style and colour. Of particular importance was incorporating the company’s logo colour in some elements of the finishes.
Evolve acoustic panels, Bridges II overlapping desks and storage, Swap tables, Craft lounge seating, Vion task chairs, Lite guest/meeting chairs and Sonic stools.
Toronto Office Furniture supported the project with designing a layout that balanced privacy within a bright and inviting open concept space. Evolve acoustic panel systems with panel fabric matching the EFL corporate logo, were used in the open area, and accompany Bridges II overlapping desks and storage in the private offices for a hip and motivating workspace. Swap tables of various heights and shapes combine for meeting, lounging and coffee-breaking in an informal setting. Seating series included Craft lounge, Vion task, Lite guest/meeting and Sonic stools. A visit to Global’s Toronto showroom facilitated the planning and selection process with dynamic results.
Core Cryolab specializes in providing cryogenic services to the medical and scientific communities including: storage, shipping, biorepository design, construction, and cryogenic equipment sales.
Core Cyrolab was connected with Toronto Office Furniture in 2016 through designer Joyce Mintzer. When it came time to expand into their new state of the art facilities in Mississaga, we were there to help with the office furniture design plan.
PROJECT COMPONENTS: Switch Panel Workstations, Scene desking and storage components, J1 Task Seating
Core Cryolab required workspace solutions for 2 offices and an open area. Switch was the product of choice for the open workspace. Its clean simplicity and individual storage options fit the requirements of the staff in this area. For the offices, Scene was a modern and sophisticated choice, reflecting the image of the company.
Joyce selected soft grey laminates and fabrics and used wall colour to create a vibrant workspace.

Toronto Office Furniture first connected with Flipp in its start up phase in 2010. With rapid expansion, Flipp moved to new or expanded facilities several times over the next 10 years. With the help of Vitamin-d design, we continued to work with Flipp as their needs evolved.
Post Leg Tables with TOFI Desk-Top Glazing, Alero, IBEX, Wind and Sonic Seating, Workspace48 Boardroom Tables
Flipp’s requirement was to provide open plan workspaces and lounge areas conducive to collaboration, as well as a number of meeting and private rooms for individual and group meetings.
To attract and support a young technology and marketing workforce, they did not want traditional panel systems even as they grew. At the outset, we introduced a simple, inexpensive connected commercial grade post-leg benching design that featured TOFI’s custom made desk-top glazing and heavy duty metal wire management troughs. This initial approach stood the test and became standardized as they expanded to 3 full floors over a three year period.
Meeting rooms were furnished with Modulus Twin-Post Tables for a modern and open look. Lounge areas included Wind soft seating and tables. Vitamin-d chose vibrant wall colours and multi-colour chair seating fabric to create a dynamic colour scheme throughout their premises.
Highlight Motor Group is a young company, established in 2007, that has grown at a rapid pace by continuing to meet the varied needs of its transportation clients. They specialize in LTL and Cross Boarder Truckload service, connecting New York and New Jersey with the Greater Toronto area.
Highlight first connected with Toronto Office Furniture with a small request for a reception desk in 2009. Since then Highlight has grown substantially and we have worked to help them with their continued expansion.
Highlight moved to a new, much larger facility to support its projected growth in 2014. With over 24,000 square feet of renovated office space, the requirement was to provide design and product recommendations suitable for executive and managment offices, warehouse offices, operations and accounting department staff, boardrooms, training facilities and reception area.
Because of the wide variation in needs, several different suppliers were recommended based on the most suitable solution for each area. Fishishes and fabrics were selected from each supplier that either matched or were similar to the other. As Highlight continues to grow, we are able to integrate new items within the overall design plan.
