Behind Every Tattoo is a Story...

They say there’s a story behind every tattoo. And we heard many stories as we researched the ways people work.

We heard stories of frustration as project teams tried to find a place that would accommodate their needs – usually, a cramped conference room in an inconvenient location. We heard stories of coworkers who longed for visual privacy in a sea of open-plan spaces. We heard stories from leadership teams wondering why production wasn’t where it needed to be despite having the talent on board.

What we heard was the need to rewrite the story on systems furniture. To find a furniture solution that easily adapted to the fluidity of today’s workforce as well as people’s individual work styles. So we took a unique and fundamentally different approach to the design of panel-based systems furniture. The result was Tattoo.

Tattoo is more than a collection of products. It’s a design philosophy that provides employees with control over their environment. Gives them the ability to easily flow from groupthink to I-think with a few simple elements: screens, height-adjustable tables, storage and lounge seating. And the best part is, you can rearrange these elements on the fly without tools or the need to involve facilities.

You can move, manipulate and modify your personal and collective spaces. This innovative approach to a systems-like solution encourages higher levels of personal privacy, interaction, ideation and reflection.

Tattoo celebrates individuality and expression. It paints a picture that’s defining and uniting – allowing everyone a way to stand out and belong. That’s our story, and we’re sticking to it.

You can preview Tattoo in person at NeoCon 2018 from June 11-13. KI is located on the 11th floor of theMart in showroom #1181. Click to learn more!
