Scale Back with Teknion Designway


Teknion cubiclesWith a call center or other workplace where employees are constantly on the phone, there’s no getting around the fact that you need a panel based system. Nice, tall panel walls are also very important for workers who need a high level of concentration to do error-free work. However, there are other workplaces where a layout that is less dependent on cubicles is fine. If you don’t have a lot of space but still want a very open feel, the Teknion Designway workstations are one product to consider.

Open and Inviting

This is a spine based system that centralizes both storage and cable management. The open shelf styling of the spine above worksurface height allows plenty of air circulation and light penetration. The popular white laminate finish enhances the reflection of light and brightens the office. There is additional storage space below worksurface level to make the most of your square footage.

Mobile Storage

If some workers require extra room for storing files, you can always add a mobile pedestal. These units roll under the worktable surface to stay out of the way when not in use. They also feature a top surface outfitted with comfy seating textile so the pedestal can serve as a stool as the occasion arises.

Flexible Partitioning

Of course, even in this type of layout, there’s still a limit to how open you might want the space to be. You can add screens and panels from the Diet® series to separate desk spaces and provide privacy as needed. These Teknion components are fully compatible with Designway so you can fix them firmly to worksurfaces rather than relying solely on freestanding panels that may be prone to tipping or shifting.

Streamlined Design

The whole collection is designed with scaled down components. There aren’t that many different parts, so specifying your entire system isn’t complicated. This focus on cutting back to the basics is in line with Teknion’s push toward greater sustainability. The Designway line isn’t about having all the bells and whistles – it’s about having the best of what you need and nothing you don’t need.
