Marking the start of 2017, things are going to be different. As we’ve established in other pressing topics, the element of technology and multiple generations in the workplace has created a need for flexible office furniture. However, many office furniture designs are running into the one overlying problem that nothing is “future proof”.
Rather than creating appropriate products temporarily until a new movement occurs, OstermanCron’s partner in crime, Kimball Office thought, “Why work harder, when we can work smarter?” Kimball’s introduction of the Pairings series has answered a requirement seldom met in office layouts.
With a new concept of “third space”, Pairings gives designers and clients the ability to transform open areas into whatever type of space they envision. For example, Pairings can start as a relaxed seating arrangement for small, collective gatherings. Later on, if your office desires a space of less talk and more work, Pairings can be constructed with an acoustical panel to create more privacy; transforming an area from a collaborative area to a quiet, private think space. The name says it all. This modular furniture is easily crafted together to create whatever environment you may be looking for.
Outside of the office, the education industry has also taken notice of Pairings. As furniture for schools has always had a challenging time keeping up with the fast paced needs of students, Pairings is quickly becoming a top university furniture pick for its unparalleled adaptability.
OstermanCron has gotten rave reviews on our recent install of Pairings in our showroom. If you’re interested and want to see it for yourself, schedule an appointment to come see or walk-ins are always welcome.
