Vela Swivel by Todd Bracher

The Vela Swivel by Todd Bracher, a minimalistic design, Vela is an essential piece for the modern office. Inspired by “an honest expression of the evolving workplace,” Vela represents a democratic design language with its unadorned yet sophisticated presence in an executive office or grouped around a large conference table. Vela’s name (stemming from the word “velum” which means membrane) represents its ability to support and comfort the nuances of the body, while still offering structure and a streamlined look for the contract environment. Vela delivers necessary ergonomics for a wide range of body types with its S-curved back (available in a mid or high-back variant) plywood structure with molded foam cushioning, and angled, cast aluminum arms for a sculptural yet comfortable form.

Studio Table

Focused on honest utility, John and Wonhee Arndt drew upon their architectural backgrounds and the Shaker Design Philosophy to create Studio Table, as elegant and beautiful as it is useful and necessary. Studio Table's minimalist approach accommodates technology without dictating function, allowing the simplicity of form to remain relevant for years to come.

MODsofa by Henrik Schulz

The MOD Lounge Collection by Henrik Schulz embodies a humanistic approach towards the workplace, crafting a piece that looks and feels at home in a range of public spaces. With a modular sensibility, MOD allows for a variety of customizable seating arrangements while optimizing productivity and comfort. MOD’s thoughtfully designed foam cushioning and wide layout make it ideal for both collaborative and individual working. Henrik Schulz kept the comfort of home in mind, designing MOD’s dynamic duality for ideal relaxation or active productivity that goes “beyond the desk.”
