The Greenery Workstation Screen System has recently been shortlisted for the 2012 FX International Interior Design Awards in the Surfaces category. Now in its 14th year, these prestigious FX Awards invite both UK and International design talent from all over the world to enter the very best of interior products and projects.
The Greenery Screen System was designed to enable ease of social interaction and privacy in the workplace and at home, whilst reducing the amount of material and infrastructure found in typical workstation arrangements. The design reduces the austere nature of workplaces by introducing organically themed elements hence the title ‘greenery’. The screens have a simple cord management system, reducing workplace clutter and accidental cord removal and can be universally applied to all desk areas.
The screen is designed using a positive and negative form from a single piece of material to create an array of customisable partitions and screening. The system can be arranged into three positions - social mode (open slot position), private mode (closed slot position) and decorative mode (opposing/fully-open). All three positions are easily customised by the user. The screens can also be used to dampen white/background noise or uneven air-flow in offices.
Designs may also be customised to reflect company branding/logos.
Open Position (social) - open communication situations - no need to stand or tilt head upwards to talk over partition system - extendable to full length of workstation or overlapped for partial cover
Closed Position (private) - general working privacy, phone calls, meetings - 6mm openings diffuse ambient noise
Decorative Position - a balance between open and closed positions - three dimensional effect using two colours - increases workplace aesthetic appearance and value/psychological well-being
