Office Design. British studio PearsonLloyd teamed with Canadian workplace company Teknion to explore new design paths in office furniture. The new collection comprises a love seat, coat racks and tabletop accessories. All pieces are designed to improve collaboration or to balance the privacy and workspace of each employee.

Luke Pearson and Tom Lloyd founders of the London based studio say “Furniture provides a wonderful canvas to talk about people. The new collection brings together the issues of a healthy and more humane workplace and expresses ideas of well- being and collaboration found in the contemporary workplace”.

The Love Seat features two chairs jointed on a corner and facing each other. The seat “pushes the boundaries of intimacy” and works as the smallest meeting space. The physical closure of the guests sitting almost in front of each other in a non aggressive position facilitate eye contact and dialogue.

With High Table PearsonLloyd condensed a table, a seat and a coat rack into one simple object. The furniture creates a simple touchdown space for a single worker and conveys a sense of personal space as well.

Hat Rack expresses the idea of mobility. Nest vessels and Tray tabletop accessories convey a truly healthy workplace through the sharing of fresh fruit, a jug of water, and a flower vase alongside the omnipotence of technology.

Materials are intentionally exposed in a raw and expressive form to help balance the growing power of technology.

We’re not just interested in the form and technical performance of an object, we’re interested in what happens around the object; how it can potentially shift behaviour and the way we do things” say at PearsonLloyd.

The London studio teamed with Teknion to investigate design concepts that embody humanistic principles and the key narratives of Ethonomics. These pieces address shared collaborative space and show also the craft of Teknion’s manufacturing process.
