This Office Deconstructed: Enjoy the Outdoors!

It’s Summertime and we enjoy taking our work day outside!

Modern technology allows us to be flexible about where we work. With the emphasis on making the work environment supportive of the way we work, let’s not restrict ourselves to the confines of four walls.

Spending time outdoors during the work day helps us de-stress and re-energizes our creativity.  The ideal outdoor workspace does take some planning and we’ve brought you some of our top picks from Landscape Forms to help you make your outdoor office just as attractive and productive as your indoor spaces.

Terrace_Morrison_Table-08_mainThe Morrison Table:

Morrison is a refined modern classic from a master of the genre. The design is simple. The magic is in the scale, proportions and jewel-like execution. Floating frames create a form language. Panel inserts in a choice of beautifully rendered architectural materials– metal, glass, concrete and wood–provide accent and tone. All Morrison products are intended and warrantied for use in protected public spaces. Morrison is part of ‘Terrace Life’, designed by Lionel Morrison for an intimate and exclusive outdoor terrace environment.

Austin benchThe Austin Bench:

It’s very contemporary. Designed by landscape architect Robert Chipman, this bench is a study in beautiful balance. Inspired by architecture of the 20’s and classic modern furniture of the 50’s, it expresses familiar themes in thoroughly contemporary terms. It balances lightness and substance, is relaxed, yet refined, poised but never boring. The cantilever version is a natural for minimalist spaces, the four-legged version a fine fit within a range of architectural styles. Composed of minimal parts, (just two extrusions create the seat and back in all versions) Austin masters the details, from tapered slats to the lovely winged shape of its end piece. In aluminum or wood Austin is a high-design solution — and a breath of fresh air — for corporate and healthcare courtyards, atria, small-scale public places, and private retail space.

Cochrane Chaise LoungeThe Cochran Chaise Lounge:

The Cochran group is simply elegant outdoor furniture designed by award-winning landscape architect Andrea Cochran for the way we live and play today. Whether sitting on the terrace with a laptop or lounging at a resort with friends, these subtly sculpted cast aluminum pieces feel as good as they look. The design is clean, refined and, like Cochran’s landscape architecture, both contemporary and timeless. Mesh seats morph with the light from opaque to nearly translucent. Polished MeldStoneTM tabletops provide solid surfaces and a counterpoint in texture.

TUUCI umbrellaThe TUUCI Plantation Classic:
