It’s hard to believe 2018 is already almost over. 2018 has been a very exciting year for the team here at Turnstone. Not only did we release several new products this year, we were also thrilled to see our products used in some fantastic new office designs all over the world. Before we ring in 2019, we wanted to take a moment to highlight a few of the outstanding office designs we’ve seen this year.

APTIV – Shanghai

For the 2018 redesign of APTIV’s Shanghai offices, improving corporate culture and communication were some of the project’s key goals. Their new offices are a great example of how to create a variety of spaces that support different styles of work and encourage socialization. In addition to having a beautiful cafeteria and conference rooms, their office is full of designated areas for solo work and group collaboration. The collaborative space pictured here features several Turnstone products, including a Campfire Lounge Sofa, Campfire Ottoman, and Campfire Personal Table, and is conveniently located near workstations and private meeting rooms, giving people a comfortable place to discuss projects as needed.

AstraZeneca – Cotia

As a pharmaceutical company, it makes sense that employee wellness would be a top priority for AstraZeneca’s offices in Cotia, Brazil. Their new offices are full of different areas that inspire people to move around throughout the day, but when it’s time to sit down, we’re glad to see they’ve included options that allow for active sitting. Buoy Seating makes a great addition to this library. Not only does Buoy’s curved base encourage good posture and engage a user’s muscles, its lightweight design makes it easy to move around as needed.

Twist Bioscience – Tel Aviv

Twist Bioscience is all about connection. It plays a vital role in what they do as a company and it was a guiding principle for their office design. They have fully embraced the concept of the open office, allowing employees to connect with each other and the world around them. Lounges and other informal work areas, like this one featuring a Campfire Paper Table, are placed to take advantage of the office’s spectacular views. With so much natural light and so many bright colors in the office, we love how energizing this office is.
