Organisational growth, changes in management, and fluctuations in economy mean the office is in constant flux. What may have worked as an office layout only a couple of months ago quickly becomes redundant.
Traditional office furniture is expensive, bulky and largely inflexible. Modular furniture is one solution to the problem, but until now it has largely been restricted to workstations and filing systems. Areas for collaboration, relaxation and focus are essential to keeping teams fully engaged and productive – and these too need to be able to adapt.
Enter Keystone™. Last month, the New Zealand-designed range was launched globally, creating a new way to invest in office furniture for the future. Essentially, Keystone™ is a modular furniture system – a kit of parts – offering an inventory of interchangeable components or ‘ingredients’, as designers IQ Commercial describe them, which can be combined and reconfigured into any number of ‘recipes’ allowing organisations the freedom to change and evolve with minimal investment.
As IQ Commercial Director Blair McKolskey says, the system is an excellent representation of the company’s purpose, “By utilising eight years of research into workplace methodologies we have created an original design which helps drive organisational performance and enable our commercial clients to succeed.”
