How and Where People
Work is Changing

Organisations are having to figure out new and different ways to support employees with great spaces to work in, wherever work happens; whether in the office, at home or elsewhere. And it’s not easy.

Employees’ expectations have changed. They want more choice and control over how and where they work. And they need the tools and equipment to make work seamless. Plus, you want to do everything in a sustainable way that benefits society and the wellbeing of your employees. It all adds up to huge pressure.

The stakes are high. Getting this wrong will affect your organisation’s performance and ability to attract and retain the best people.

Finding the Right Furniture Solutions & Design Partner Will Help You Get the Big Decisions Right.

How We Work With You

4 Steps to Create Smarter, Healthier & Sustainable Work Experiences

Listen & Consult


We listen carefully to understand your goals, challenges and priorities; what your people need and how and where they like to work. We’ll suggest ideas that make a difference to your budget, goals and the environment.

Design & Specify


We’ll apply our insights and ideas and shape your physical space through furniture and design to optimise the working experience for your people. We’ll think of the details and consider all your options: Refurbish and reuse, or source the market for the best, sustainable furniture products. We’ll visualise your choices to make decisions easier.

Procure & Deliver


We’ll get you the best value for your budget (and make sure suppliers are environmentally and socially responsible). We’ll project manage, deliver, and complete your space on schedule with minimal disruption. We’ll be your one point of contact, managing suppliers to make sure the schedule runs smoothly, with maximum compliance and minimum risk.

Support & Sustain


Our work doesn’t stop after the project’s delivered. We’ll help you with physical moves, asset management, and ongoing furniture maintenance. We’ll also help extend the lifecycle of your furniture by repurposing it where possible. And when you have furniture you no longer need, we can buy it back, reuse it, or build something new out of it.
