Tribeca Coffee’s Workspace: A laid-back blend of retro and modern.

Tribeca workspaces - functional plywood storage furniture

If you find yourself surrounded by good people, well-brewed coffee, and cool retro holiday pics, chances are you’re at one of Tribeca Coffee’s three stunning buildings in Centurion, Pretoria. Great coffee, good food and the best memories of places and times gone by is the feeling that hits you when you walk into the offices and look around at the photography of bygone holidays, retro cars and days in the sun… It all contributes to a feel-good positive outlook that this company is well known for.Tribeca workspaces - functional plywood workstations and storage furnitureTribeca workspaces - functional plywood lab furnitureThat said, it doesn’t mean that the workspaces at Tribeca are light-duty. The people here work hard at the brand and they need hardworking workstations, shelving, storage and lab furniture which we gladly provide as they understand and seek the economic value of the Raw aesthetic built into all of our products.Tribeca workspaces - functional plywood shelving and workstations furnitureTribeca workspaces - Stilts - functional plywood shelving furnitureWe have been working with Tribeca since they moved into their first building many years ago (see more projects here) and since then they found ways to include Raw Studios in many of their ventures, including retail venues and mobile coffee stations.Tribeca workspaces - functional plywood workstations and storage furnitureFrom stained coloured doors that complement their style to functional storage which keeps all the admin in place, Tribeca continues to curate their workspaces and combined with good coffee, and a laid-back atmosphere it has been an interesting and winning formula.

Wallspace minimalistic modular exhibition walling system at Javett Art CentreIt’s been no secret that we have been working with the University of Pretoria on various projects over the past years. What you maybe do not know is that we don’t only supply furniture but exhibition walls as well.Wallspace minimalistic modular exhibition walling system at Javett Art CentreBack in 2017 Mathews and Associates Architects approached Raw Studios to develop an exhibition system for the exciting new Javett Art Centre at the University of Pretoria. The brief was music to our ears and a chance to challenge ourselves. In the end, we in collaboration with Journeyman Collective designed and manufactured a walling system, which is suitable for the exquisite Art Centre but also true to our values. Wallspace™ is a sleek and minimalistic modular wall that is easy to use, move, adapt and a simple solution for most exhibitions and even office spaces.Wallspace minimalistic modular exhibition walling system at Javett Art CentreThe collaboration with Javett and the development of Wallspace™ left us feeling inspired, we mean, our white backdrop walls are being used to showcase some of South Africa’s most talented artists.
