Product Highlights

Activity Chair

Workspaces are changing to support new modes of work. New ways of working are leading us to agile environments that promote collaboration, creativity and productivity. Flexibility helps build self-empowerment – especially when it comes to where you work. Activity features a weight-sensitive mechanism that responds to your body automatically and delivers comfort in an instant.

Optimis Desking System

Optimis celebrates the joy of creating by focusing on simple materials like paper and sheet metal that can be designed to focus highly robust and architectural objects. POSH Design Lab also took their cues from origami techniques, or the Japanese art of folding paper. The end result is a unique desking solution that is highly functional and less impactful on the environment. Optimis is the first desking platform with an open source platform for paper accessories.


T2 is a next-generation smart desk that embraces the potential of Internet of Things for workspaces. Combining an app-driven digital experience with a hardworking desking solution, T2 elevates the art of stand-up work to new heights. T2 moves and moves. As a mobile, height-adjustable workpoint, T2 is highly adaptive and forms part of a ‘hackable’ solution that empowers users to create their own spaces. Combining user-centric sensitivity, an above-desk technology manager and completely concealed cable management, T2 is unlike any other desk ever made.


Group spaces that encourage engagement and productivity are more important than ever, yet our research shows that up to two-thirds are avoided. Exclave is designed to remove the frictions that inhibit engagement and productivity. A broad range of applications that include mobile accessories like white boards, pin boards, technology and video conferencing support that hang up on modular rails and a range of unique shape standing and seating height desks – Exclave brings higher performance to collaboration and enhances creativity thinking.


Based on the belief that the more people connect, the better they work, Public transforms every part of the office—including individual desks—into places for collaboration. Public can be used to create settings to support casual work and to provide comfort at the desk, in circulation spaces, and in group areas— all within a consistent design vocabulary.
