We believe that play incubates creativity, sparks innovation and helps connect others to the world around us. Here, we define “play” as having fun. Stimulation and stress-relief from play is not only essential for kids, but for adults too. As adults, we spend much of our waking hours at work. As such, it is a daunting task to find time and energy for play, on top of all the other commitments we have. Therefore, we encourage businesses to incorporate play in their offices where employees can relax, unwind or simply have fun.
We have designed a range of modular furniture with infinite possibilities to facilitate play at the workplace, while enabling offices to meet the changing dynamics of the work environment. The design of these furniture moves away from the homogeneous look that is typical in offices by creating a homely and cosy feel with the use of soft finishes and atypical 120-degree panel configurations at various heights.
We are showcasing an installation in conjunction with the Singapore Design Week and SingaPlural 2018.
The theme of our installation is named “Play at work”, where a set of sofa with privacy panels, coffee tables and ottomans are showcased to show how our designs and the use of colours in furniture can help transform the office to a playground where people can connect and have fun together. We have incorporated some fun ideas and activities that we think can help foster teamwork by bringing people together and connecting minds.
Visit us at SingaPlural 2018 at National Design Centre, 111 Middle Road S188969, from 5 to 18 March 2018.
