Behind the Glass - presented by figure3 and Haworth, is part of the Toronto Design Offsite Festival 2015. I had the honour and pleasure to be part of the design team for the ideation and installation of this fun project. Come see it this week if you are in Toronto. Psychic spy - our window seat installation where random thoughts are generated when you sit down in them. Kudos go to Blair Kelly who is the technical whiz that provided hardware and programming solution to make this such a fun interactive installation!
Environics Analytics office interior designed by figure3, features Haworth furniture to support various workstyles of this modern office. A small office that features no dedicated receptionist, it has a small reception lounge next to the multi-function breakout / lunch / town hall area complete with branded feature wall and bar height counters that support cafe style work and collaboration. Small telephone rooms + meeting rooms provide privacy to support the open studio environment. Glass panels with gradated privacy film anchor the end of benching workstations which include storage pedestals with guest seating pads for casual visitors and mini-meetings at the desk or screen. Touch-down stations and soft lounge chairs opposite the hallway of the studio provide mobile workers / guests alternate space for short term work environments.
It is such a fun and efficient space which supports workstyles of this modern marketing analytics company. Environics was finalist in the 2014 REMMY awards for small innovative workspace.
The newly renovated Haworth Toronto Showroom features a mix of workplace solutions and sexy Haworth Collections with classic to modern design that fits in many settings outside of the office. There is a cleverly disguised meeting/ping-pong table, multi-purpose to the core. I personally love the rocking horse chair-the shetland. You have to try it, loads of fun to ride and versatile for various tasks! The boardroom features a table with proprietary technology "workware" that enables easy collaboration and information sharing. The boardroom, raised floor, and presentation rooms feature large environmental graphic backdrops featuring image and adapted graphic from my streetcar portrait series. Haworth Toronto Showroom is opened from 9 to 5, Monday to Friday.
