Teknion’s Routes Collection Selected as 2021 Interior Design Best of Year Winner
The Bold, Intuitive Furnishings Designed by PearsonLloyd Are as Playful as They Are Practical
Celebrating its 16th year, Interior Design’s Best of Year has become the ultimate measure of excellence in every category of design.
“We’re thrilled to receive this recognition from Interior Design,”– says David Feldberg, CEO at Teknion
“They’ve set the bar for promoting great design, and any time they honor us it means a great deal. We took a risk with this collection, trying to predict how offices and their purpose will change. We saw room for increased collaboration and reconfiguration of spaces – using less precious materials and allowing the product to function as a true tool to the worker.”
Pearson Lloyd agrees, adding:
“We worked with Teknion to develop a portfolio of high-performance work tools design with aesthetics and performance in mind. The Routes family is designed to allow teams to create flexible, utility-driven, and engaging workspaces quickly and efficiently. We’re really pleased with how well another creative collaboration with Teknion has turned out.”
The Routes collection speaks to a growing market of enterprises requiring user flexibility to transform a space quickly.
Routes offers a radically new profile and materiality for furniture in work environments. Light, agile, and mobile, Routes encourages people to move about and move their furniture around, make or unmake a space to think, meet, or create. All Routes products are available in a curated, designer-selected finish palette through Teknion’s Click & Ship program.
