STEELCASE WINS BEST COMMERCIAL PRODUCT DESIGN

Steelcase, the leading insight-led design-driven solutions provider, has been awarded the ‘Best Commercial Product Design’ for its Brody WorkLounge at the INDEX Architecture and Design Awards (IADA) 2017. The high performance and supportive WorkLounge features patented LiveLumbar™ technology, bringing thoughtful ergonomic design to the lounge posture.

Providing privacy screens and an enhanced sense of psychological security for workers, Brody WorkLounge offers the ideal microenvironment for people who need a place to get away without going away. Transforming underutilized, in-between spaces into coveted destinations, its adjustable Personal WorkSurface also holds technology at eye level, reducing neck and shoulder strain while supporting today’s varied working styles and ample device usage.

Commenting on the award, John Small, Director of Design at Steelcase said: “We are delighted to receive this accolade from the IADA, celebrating exceptional creativity, innovation and passion in design. Maintaining focus is a costly problem in today’s fast paced and connected world but the Brody WorkLounge creates a comfortable microenvironment by thoughtfully integrating power, ergonomic comfort, personal storage and lighting—so employees can focus their attention and get work done.”

Adaptive bolstering also enables the WorkLounge’s cushion to adapt to the unique size of each user, while a footrest with nonslip surface provides additional support for legs and feet to maintain exceptional seat comfort.

Held as part of the INDEX Design Series – the region’s largest and most comprehensive commercial interior design event – The INDEX Architecture and Design Awards celebrate the region’s leading architects, designers, projects and products.
