31st May 2018, 14:32pmGodfrey Syrett returned to Clerkenwell Design Week from 22nd-24th May to launch the newest additions to their product portfolio, including a versatile light task chair designed by Norbert Geelen, and selected items from our new Timber Collection, launched early 2018.
We invited visitors to see how they can ‘redefine their boundaries’ and enhance their space with carefully selected and agile furniture choices.
Eze, designed by Norbert Geelen, is supplied exclusively to the UK market by Godfrey Syrett. Eze is an occasional task chair which is ideally suited to conference spaces, touchdown and breakout areas, or meeting rooms. Imitating the tapered shape of a wine glass, the backframe embraces the chair in one simple, bold movement; defining its posture and creating a sophisticated and flowing surface.
We also showcased our new Timber Collection, a curated selection of wooden-framed furniture. Launched in early 2018, the Timber Collection embraces the trend towards natural materials in the workplace, and the effect that surface, texture and colour can have on an individual’s wellbeing. Highlights on show at Project included Molly, a comprehensive family of fully upholstered, armless lounge chairs with a variety of frame options; and Mr Jones, refreshed for 2018 with a stunning swivel base.
Mark Richards, Design Manager at Godfrey Syrett, said:
“We’re very excited to be returning to Clerkenwell Design Week, and with such a fantastic array of products. It’s a key event for us to be able to present our new developments to the market, and engage with visitors for their comments and feedback.”
“This year, we want to invite visitors to think about how they can redefine their boundaries – in the physical sense, using products like Isla; but also in the way that they approach their space, and the products they put in it.”
We also previewed Isla, a flexible, adaptable seating range; designed for the modern workspace by in-house Product Designer Bob Muir. Isla acknowledges that spaces are continually less distinct, with little definition between work and rest areas; and that often a single space or piece of furniture will need to accommodate many different tasks. A fluid system, Isla can be used as individual seating units; or as a combination of elements to create island chains. With an innovative accessory attachment system, reconfiguration can be easily achieved for an adaptive working environment.
