As we continue to see a domestication of the workplace, Zenith has launched a new modular seating range, Platforma, which brings with it a soft residential aesthetic
With the continual blurring of the lines between work and home life, it makes sense that companies are increasingly investing in workspaces that mirror our own homes. What was once a rarity, it’s now commonplace to find relaxing armchairs and living room-like break out spaces in today’s offices.
As part of Zenith’s mission to create more eclectic, comfortable spaces to work the company decided in 2009 to invest more heavily in its in-house research and development (R&D) department, and consequently the Zenith Design Studio. The studio’s designers are focussed on creating environments that inspire people to excel, by designing furniture that fosters an inviting atmosphere.
Fresh out of the studio is the Platforma range. Drawing its name from the solid ash base on which it sits, Platforma showcases clean architectural lines juxtaposed with relaxed upholstery. The range comprises an armchair, lounge, modular lounge, chaise and ottoman. The collection is adaptable to suit an array of spaces. Optional planter box, cushions and complementing side and coffee tables are available, as are modular connection brackets.
