Zones is a comprehensive series of furniture products that transforms the office, challenging convention and changing the way people experience work. It comprises seating, tables, screens, easels and accessories, as well as semi-private enclosures which can act either as an intimate collaborative setting or as a place of retreat when privacy is desired. Zones’ breadth of offering across multiple workplace categories with a consistent design language makes it unique.
Influenced and inspired by the untethered, modern worker who seeks movement, flexibility and convenience, Zones transitions the workplace from one that’s fixed and formal to a space that suits a variety of preferences and working habits. Components can be combined in limitless ways to create flexible, fluid work areas that exist “in between” less adaptable areas like private offices, conference rooms and high-density workstations.
Wood is used as a modern engineering material ensuring strength, flexibility, sustainability, beauty, craft and humanity. The combination of wood with other materials, and Zones’ harmonious, soft design, emphasize the domesticity and materiality of the collection.
Zones addresses the needs for focus, collaborative and workshop areas within the office environment. Designed by PearsonLloyd in conjunction with Teknion, the Zones collection won several 2016 Best of NeoCon awards, including Best of Competition and a Gold. Zones Benches won Gold and Zones Tables earned Silver in the Best of NeoCon competition.
Zones includes 15 different seating types which individually and collectively reflect Zones’ expression of a humanistic work culture. The mixture of wood, plastic, metal and upholstery demonstrates Zones’ characteristic materiality. All Zones seating is proportioned to accommodate the growing needs of the North American market and is tested to ANSI/BIFMA standards. Weight capacity is 300 lbs. (136 kg).
Zones Modular Seating
The Zones Modular Seating lounge collection includes fully upholstered straight or curved bench modules, plus accessories. Modular Seating is designed to work with and complement other Zones products, thereby expanding the collection’s planning possibilities and applications in architectural spaces. Visually, the collection creates a soft domestic mood with a rich and layered mix-and-match vocabulary.
Zones Modular Seating can be used by itself, or in conjunction with coordinating Ledge Tables, integrated tables, tablets & accessories; providing multiple configurations while addressing the needs of today’s work behaviors and planning scenarios.
Zones Arm Chair, Side Chair & Stool
The Zones Arm Chair is a fresh interpretation of an old-world wood chair. It features a one-piece plastic, sculpted back that elegantly twists to form armrests and invisibly connect to the signature curved Beech wood legs; blending with other seating, tables and accessories within the Zones collection. The Zones Side Chair and Side Stools are more casual and appropriate for more compact spaces. Backless stools are offered at bar, counter and desk heights.
Zones Benches accommodate one or two persons and are ideal in focus, collaborative and workshop areas. Available with or without a back, Zones Benches are crafted with an upholstered seat, solid Beech wood frames and joinery.
Zones Club Chairs
Club Chair with 4 Wood Legs is more traditional soft seating. The version with a 4-Prong Base is a contemporary chair with a fixed height and swivel-return that’s ideal for meeting spaces. Club Chair with 5-Star Base, height adjustment and swivel-tilt provides more flexibility – perfect for touch-down/casual spaces. The Club Stool expands applications to counter height.
Zones Solo Lounge Chair
The Zones Lounge Chair is simple, fluid and iconic. It has a slight angular recline, and the front has a draped skirt which gives the chair its characteristic appearance. Features include a swivel-tilt mechanism with auto-return and a base in either polished aluminum or contemporary paint finish.
One- and two-person In-the-Zone Sofas have been designed specifically to fit within Zones Screen enclosures, but are equally well-suited for use outside of enclosures in the open plan. Options for power/data and tablet make these sofas appropriate for a variety of workplace applications.
The Zones collection includes Workshop and Canteen Tables available in a variety of sizes and shapes, serving meetings of two to six people in touchdown or hot-desking scenarios.
Zones Canteen tables are used in a classic way for break-out meetings or lunch/coffee and are available in sitting or standing heights. Zones Workshop tables fulfill project-centered work. An optional runner accommodates various power and lighting options.
Zones includes a series of compact, semi-private Enclosed Zones intended for inward-facing focused work. Wood panels provide a warm and inviting aesthetic. Partial-height slots combined with partial-height fabric buffers provide a customizable level of softness and privacy.
Solo Lounge Zones
Furnished with a one-seat In-the-Zone Sofa and a medium pivoting table – can be placed adjacent to each other to create additional privacy within the configuration.
The Lounge Zone provides a protected, intimate meeting area – a casual, collaborative space. A large shared table provides a simple touch-down surface while sofas include a small fixed-position tablet for beverages or PDA.
Digital Lounge Meeting Zones provide a cocoon for interaction within the space as well as outside with virtual collaborators. The Zone is oriented so users face each other for a digitally collaborative meeting space. Full, soft interior fabric contributes to the casual lounge-like atmosphere. Desktop power on a task-height worksurface provides a formal technology-driven meeting space in a domestic environment.
