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.

PROJECT COMPONENTS: 

Evolve acoustic panels,  Bridges II overlapping desks and storage, Swap tables, Craft lounge seating, Vion task chairs, Lite guest/meeting chairs and Sonic stools.

Design Plan

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.

PRODUCT PARTNERS: Tayco,

PROJECT COMPONENTS: Switch Panel Workstations, Scene desking and storage components, J1 Task Seating

 

Design Plan

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.

CLIENT: Flipp

DATE: 2011, 2014-2018

PRODUCT PARTNERS: Global,  IOF, TOFI, Workspace48

PROJECT COMPONENTS: 

Post Leg Tables with TOFI Desk-Top Glazing, Alero, IBEX, Wind and Sonic Seating, Workspace48 Boardroom Tables

Design Plan

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.

PRODUCT PARTNERS: Global, Tayco, IOF

PROJECT COMPONENTS: Cosmopolitan Panel Workstations, IOF Desking, Zira Offices and Meeting Tables, Tayco Metropolis Offices

 

Design Plan

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.

Overview

CLIENT: K2 Canada

DATE: April 2019

KEY PARTNERS: Tayco, Global

PRODUCTS: Switch Panel workstations and Scene Private Offices, Global Alero Mesh Back Chairs.

Design Plan

K2 Canada was working with very large outdated panel workstations and wanted to make their space more open, modern and attractive to the yonger worker.

The design required planning for 10 offices and 10 open area workstations.  Minimizing storage or clutter was a desired design criteria.

Tayco’s Switch panel system was ideal in creating a warehouse style look, with white chocolate laminate gallery panels, panel mounted glass screens and black metal trims.  Global’s Alero black mesh-back chairs were a great ergonomic and complementary choice.
