Even though the evolution of the world of work had been in the offing for a long time, the speed with which it took place in 2020 was nevertheless surprising. The beginning decade will go down in history as a time of redefinition and upheaval. Remote working, home office, agile working and flexible workplace models are all part of the new normal. What impact will this have on the design of work environments? König + Neurath develops concepts and product solutions to accompany companies through this time of change.

A desk system that changes with you

The office furniture manufacturer has designed a new scalable desk system that adapts completely to the current work situation and the company’s own work culture – and can be adapted to new requirements at any time: TALO.YOU. “If the way people work and where they spend time while doing so continues to be so flexible, their equipment needs to be just as modular,” says Michael Cappello, CEO of König + Neurath AG. “We therefore analyzed our product offering and asked ourselves which scenarios the new solution needed to reflect. The result was a modular table system that focuses on user requirements.”

Everything is scalable, including office furnishings

“Since we can’t know today how we will work tomorrow, office furnishings should offer maximum freedom to companies, furnishers and workers alike,” Müller-Schellhorn characterizes the stipulation for redesigning a desk system. “And not only that: it should also be able to change with the demands. No matter whether it’s the shape of the frame, the color of the tabletop, the type of height adjustment, mobility or future application possibilities!” The new table system promises to adapt to the work culture of its users in terms of its functionality and design. TALO.YOU can be configured for many work situations as a single table, conference system, relay table or bench. As a square tube or round frame, combined with a classic T-foot or A-foot made of tubular steel or oak real wood legs, TALO.YOU adapts to individual work cultures. “Ergonomics, contemporary design and matching accessories are standard features of our office furniture,” says Müller-Schellhorn. “All tables are height-adjustable by motor, also as a conference system and relay table. Thanks to its modular design, TALO.YOU can be adapted to new situations and requirements at any time.

Ideas for the future: TALO.YOU and the PERSONALBOX

The flexibility of the system ensures that with TALO.YOU, companies rely on a sustainable concept of office furnishing. An ideal complement to TALO.YOU is the PERSONALBOX. Made of recycled plastic and available in black and white, the storage solution can be used multifunctionally: It can be attached directly to the table on both sides and stores personal items safely and conveniently. In addition, it offers itself, in the version with wheels, as additional seating.
