We congratulate Allsteel Inc. on their recent award for the game-changing ‘Retreat’ collection.
‘Retreat’ garnered the 2017 GOOD DESIGN award in the furniture category and by virtue of this recognition is now included in the prestigious Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design’s Permanent Design Collection.
The philosophy behind the design was the creation of private space in the midst of an open plan environment. The space defining design was created in partnership with Niels Bendtsen of Bendtsen Design Associates.
The Retreat line incorporates a number of upholstered lounge seating styles including wing-back, high-back and low-back chairs and an ottoman. Not only does the collection offer privacy (through the wing-back option), it also makes better use of both social and collaborative areas to maximize efficiency of the office space.
In keeping with the latest trend of bringing residential style design into the office landscape, Retreat offers the comfort of home in a professional setting.
The Bendtsen/Allsteel partnership has resulted in a refined, timeless design that’s multi-functional and supports the way we work today.
