Comprised of furniture, lighting, and accessories, this is no collection of conventional contract furniture, but rather an eclectic set of tools—“encouraging people to move about and to move their furniture around, to make or unmake a space in which to think, meet or create.”
The term “Flexible” has become so ubiquitous that it’s becoming a cliché, but Routes is truly so. Each piece offers options that facilitate different styles and scales of working: “allowing one to build-up a complete workspace for a small, tight-knit studio or create casual ‘pop-up’ work hubs across the expanse of a corporate headquarters.”
Some examples help to illustrate. There’s the Meet N’ Greet chair, a comfy yet no-nonsense multi-purpose piece that cozies up nicely to the Laptop table.
The Multi-Use stool is long on personality and loads of fun. A diminutive furnishing that races to your rescue as an ottoman, seat, or handy place to put stuff, it may remind you of a friendly robot.
The Double desk with screen is ideal for quick collaboration or quickly cordoning off into a private work station.
And the Routes Rocking chair will make you forget you’re at work. A simple, streamlined shape pairs nicely with bright upholstery.
The above is really just the tip of the proverbial iceberg for all that Routes has to offer. Additional furnishings and accessories include a three leg stool, high table, mobile soft screen, sofas, desks, and a variety of complementary lighting.
The idea here—embodied in the name—is that this suite of furniture gives you vision, a sort of road map into how you want to work and how to get there: “Pick a way to sit, a place to engage and a space to work. Personal preference is the essence of the new workplace. Routes can be consistently changed to create spaces that are specific to that day’s tasks.”
