König + Neurath supports companies with new product ideas for more flexibility
Although the workplace evolution was looming on the horizon for quite a while, the speed at which it occurred in 2020 was surprising nonetheless. The start of this decade will go down in history as a time of new definitions and upheaval. Remote working, home office, agile working and flexible workspace models are part of the new normal. How has that affected the design of working environments? König + Neurath develops concepts and product solutions to support companies through changing times.
The office furniture manufacturer has designed a new scalable desk system that’s fully oriented to the current work situation and unique work culture – and adapts to new requirements when needed: TALO.YOU. “If the way people work and where they do it continues to be flexible like this, their office outfitting will have to be modular as well,” says Michael Cappello, board spokesman at König + Neurath AG. “That’s why we’ve analysed our product range and asked ourselves what scenarios the new solution will need to reflect. The outcome is a modular desk system that puts the spotlight on user requirements.”
“Since we can’t anticipate today how we’ll be working tomorrow, office furniture should allow maximum freedom to companies, office fitters and employees alike,” says Müller-Schellhorn, explaining the reasoning behind the concept of a new desk system. “And not only that: we wanted to design one that could change to suit requirements: regardless of whether that meant the leg frame style, the colour of the top, type of height adjustment, mobility or potential future applications!” The new desk system promises to fit in with the user’s work culture in terms of both function and design. TALO.YOU can be configured for many work situations as an individual desk, conference system, nesting table or bench. With a square or round tube leg frame, combined with a classic T-leg or A-leg frame in steel tube or solid oak legs, TALO.YOU fits in with the individual work culture. “Ergonomics, contemporary design and matching accessories are supplied as standard with all our office furniture,” assures Müller-Schellhorn. “All the tables feature motorised height adjustment, even for conference systems and nesting tables. Thanks to its modular design, TALO.YOU can be adapted to new situations and requirements at any time.
The flexibility of the system ensures that companies are investing in a sustainable office outfitting concept with TALO.YOU. An ideal complement to TALO.YOU is the PERSONALBOX. This storage solution is made from recycled plastic in black or white, and can be used multi-functionally: it can be attached directly to the desk from either side and used to store personal items safely and conveniently. The specification on castors also makes a handy extra seat.
