Away from the Desk (AftD) is a soft upholstery system designed to answer the rapidly changing needs of the workplace as we migrate away from personal desks with their fixed and tethered technology towards shared, collaborative spaces and furniture. AftD answers the need for more diverse configurations for both personal work and teamwork. Multiple specification options – for individual use, or for two, four or six people –can be further configured for larger, more open and more inclusive collaborative settings at lounge, table or bar height.
AftD’s high back design provides refined acoustic and visual privacy and offers an upright, ergonomically controlled seating position more reflective of a task seat posture. It also provides multiple specification options for large and small work surfaces and can meet a wide variety of power, data and monitor requirements.
With the help of our clients, their designers and specifiers, AftD is helping to transform office environments and working practices. AftD has become an industry archetype, used as a verb to describe being able to work increasingly away from the desk.
