The multifunctional product is a perfect solution for the ever-changing post-Covid office
Furniture brand Bisley, working in conjunction with Anglepoise, just presented its new collection Quarters, a range of booth seating with integral secure locker space and lighting, perfectly placed to meet the needs of the post-Covid workplace.
As the need for flexible working patterns has never been stronger, Quarters – a family of sheltered working spaces – helps create collaborative workspaces where team members can safely work alone or together. Created to provide a haven away from the busy workplace, the range has been uniquely designed with personal storage embedded for easy access.
Recognising the need for adaptability within workspaces, the booths can be configured, allowing users to decide on their purpose, whether working in a single booth to concentrate, a double booth for ideas and co-working, or collaborating with other team members in a meeting booth. Quarters’ flexibility can change, adapt and grow as an organisation does.
‘The office landscape is constantly changing”, says Richard Costin, CEO of Bisley. “And, the pandemic has meant that we’ve needed to adapt our working spaces as more individuals embrace a hybrid way of working, with companies providing space for collaboration, as well as places for individuals to focus.”
Featuring specialised sound-dampening panels, which envelop the storage component so users have all the buzz of a busy office, the panels also help prevent the noise becoming too much of a distraction, enabling people to enjoy a tranquil office environment. Available in two heights, one a ‘garden fence’ level, giving the option for a quick hello to a passerby and a higher, more private option for a no-distractions confidential meetings.
Meanwhile, agile workers will delight in the personal storage element which enables belongings to be safely tucked away within the booths, while power is provided via a USB type A&C under the seat and at table top height for maximum convenience. Furthermore, Quarters incorporates Anglepoise’s iconic Type 80 lamp, which has a halo lightscape effect, courtesy of its classic conical lampshade, and is available in black, grey, pistachio and rose pink, while the screens and the seating booths are available in multiple tonal fabric options.
“Quarters is a very unique product for Bisley and a milestone in our continued uplift of our brand and product equity – introducing upholstery for the first time”, adds Robin Bayliss, Group Sales Director said of the collaboration.
“I am also incredibly delighted with our collaboration with another iconic British brand Anglepoise; putting our two companies together in a product collaboration has been very exciting, expecially now to launch it after two years of designing and planning.”
