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.

Raw bringing it in with Inhouse at 100% Design 2019

RAW Studios 100% Design 2019 Best Product Design Award InhouseThere are a few things that keep us motivated here at Raw Studios… from the smell of freshly made coffee to start our day to exciting new products and projects that energise us and encourage us to grow and push the boundaries. The third motivator is when hard work pays off… This got new meaning this year after winning the award for the best product design 2019 at 100% Design South Africa. We have been dreaming of changing our furniture into a structure you can live in and experience every day: this year it became a reality!

The final motivator is you, your feedback, your support and excitement for Inhouse. Thank you to all our new and loyal clients that have recognized the potential in Raw Studios and the exciting new potential of Inhouse.
