Knoll had quite a few items to show off at the 2010 NeoCon event. Among the pieces showcased was the ultra-modern Antenna Workspaces office furniture system. The pieces in this collection are designed for open office spaces with an emphasis on mobility and collaboration. Connections, boundaries, and transitions are the buzz words that float around in discussions of how these pieces function. If you missed the NeoCon event, that’s OK – you can take an interactive tour here (scroll to the bottom of the page).
Antenna desk clusters are not contained in cubicles, but they do feature screens to reduce distractions when necessary. The collection also includes a “big table” for team meetings and work that requires joint effort. The floating effect of table and desk tops (which can be laminate, wood, or glass) adds a hint of airiness to an otherwise sharp-edged, down to earth design. Antenna office furniture is definitely designed to draw attention to functionality while still offering an astonishing array of wood veneer and textile finishes not usually seen in an office environment.
