“They know best” they say.

Who are “they”?

We all know “they”… It’s that “guy” who always knows all the facts about Cape Town’s weather, the best diet to follow, the latest assets to invest in or what Sally really did last December.

That clears it up right? Yeah, umm, not really.

Well, that is exactly why we decided to chat to They and clear up the confusion once and for all.

Turns out the real They is a company that focuses on directing music videos, shorts and ads for companies, people and artists who appreciate great story telling.

Not having met They before we were quite curious of how a company like theirs would operate. When master storytellers, Alan and Darren, approached us just before they relocated office, Alan mentioned They (pun intended) were looking for a solution that would “cancel out the bad side of an open plan layout, still remain inviting but offer the focused privacy needed for many of their tasks”. We didn’t hesitate to assist in the project, because we knew we were working with likeminded guys who were ready to change things a little.

Wall Space™, along with our Epik™ furniture, were the solutions that jumped to mind that ticked all the boxes of their new workplace requirements.

Ekstend Basik to Tall: all new affordable storage!

New Ekstend Basik to Tall: Office Storage Solutions Desk Furniture

There’s no need to opt for the sad low quality grey options on the market any longer. Our three new professional storage options are not trying to reinvent the storage landscape, but they do match our look and feel perfectly, and they are so much more affordable.

We don’t have to strategically position our chairs to the side, blocking views of our pedestals hoping visitors won’t notice our stylistic “faux pas” anymore. #notourproudestmoment

We present to you Raw Studios’ latest storage options ready to keep desks tidy with real style and still be easy on the pocket:

1. Basik Stor

This small compact under-desk storage covers the daily basics. Two drawers with solid birch ply fronts and a tasteful white melamine box frame on glides will keep your desk space good-looking and neat at the same time.

2. Ekstend Stor

Specifically designed to give that extra work surface space with the added benefit of storage below, this unit of 740mm desk height, comes with 4 drawers with solid birch plywood fronts and a neat white melamine bodice. One of its cool quirks is the super functional top stationery drawer.

3. Tall Stor

This is the big brother of the Basik and Ekstend stor. Reaching above the desk to provide screened privacy, the unit has a main compartment that is drawn out to reveal two useful drawers with solid birch ply fronts and shelves offering ample storage space.

RAW Studios' 100% Design - Best Office Furniture Design AwardWhat a great feeling when we get recognition for our work on workspace furniture and systems that make workdays more productive, healthy and enjoyable. We have been bringing fresh thinking into a rather unimaginative office furniture industry and the waves that we have made have not gone unnoticed… Hence this award.

Thank you to all our existing clients that have seen the light, the need for change and the value of considering workspace and not just populating it. And to the curious change agents out there, give us a call or contact us to see how we can help to transform your workspace…

Our new award winning Work_epik products are here to steal the show, and for good reason…

RAW Studios Work-epik

Designed for flexibility and engagement on sooo many levels, the new additions also don’t hold back on “epik-ness”.

For the last few months we have been engaged in developing what we believe are products that will help activate and energise the workplace and specifically help teams to do their thing effectively. At 100% Design this year we launched some new products into our Epik range, for the 100% office feature, to show how offices are evolving for the better.

We were ecstatic to find out that our solution to the modern workplace, stood its ground among large office furniture companies to come out on top as the “BEST OFFICE DESIGN 2017”!

RAW Epik_Work Office Range

 

Ladies and gentlemen, we present to you the award winning Work_epik range!

 

#1 Standpoint.

RAW Work_epik standpoint

Essentially a standing meeting, brainstorming or simply a connecting point. Here you can plug in (and charge) your devices and have a formal or informal meeting, a quick brainstorm or a full-on work session. Equipped with a monitor arm, a light and even a place for greenery and stationery, you would be hard pressed to find it wanting anything but respect.

At a comfortable height to work standing, this table encourages you to get up and work from what is  believed to be a more healthy “standpoint”. For those who would like to elevate themselves to the next level while still remaining seated,  they can make use of the new Din+™ tall task chair and conveniently sit and work at this new height.

Standing tall at 870mm , 2400mm long and 1100mm wide, this new table is big enough to accommodate you, your co-workers and even the random guy you met at the water cooler.

Looking to equip this boy will all the bells and whistles? Well look no further, Standpoint™ can house electrical reticulation, a stationery compartment and a planter box. Another great add-on is the monitor arm, providing a platform for digital presentations and a sleek lamp to light up the darker days.

 

#2 Hub.

RAW Studios Work_epik hub

A multifunctional, mobile and very flexible station where teams come alive. Hub can be moved around and deployed wherever great team work happens. It carries chairs and tables on its back and is loaded with collaboration-infusing features such as a magnetic whiteboard, a monitor and charging ports. Hub has got your back… and your front.

The compact mobile design allows you to use the hub in many workplace settings. Nestled in the centre, the stacking chairs provide convenient seats that can be deployed as necessary. Laptop tables add the necessary portable worksurfaces, for those that need a surface to work on.

When the brainstorming is over and you are ready to present your work simply swivel the unit around and the monitor can be used to get your ideas across.

The hub comes equipped with 4 stacking chairs, 2 laptop tables, a storage compartment, electrical reticulation, a white board and a monitor bracket. All that functionality packs into the compact size of 1700 x 600 mm, allowing you to place it just about anywhere.

#3 Pod.

RAW Work_epik pod

If it’s quiet contemplation, important calls, focused work or a core team meeting that you need, this quirky space has been re-designed to give more options in use and is now easier to open up to the world out there or close up to forget about the world out there.

The pod comes in two sizes of a cozy 1200mm x 700mm or a spacious 1600 x 700mm. As with the other Epik products, the pod can also be equipped with electrical reticulation to keep you connected.

Let’s get into the “more-options” feature of the pod: to continue the RAW modular and innovative design language, we’ve equipped the pod with three user modes.

 

The Tub Couch

RAW Work_epik tub-couch

Before growing tall, the pod can be ordered as a tub couch, kitted out with the necessary essentials of reticulation and comfy upholstered cushions, armrests are added to extend the comfort further. Alone or as a pair, the tub couch is perfect for reception areas, individual offices or open break spaces.
 

The High Back Couch

RAW Work_epik high-back-couch

The semi private high back couch comes kitted with the essentials of the tub couch but with extended sides and back . If you are tired of the world out there but don’t want to be cut off from it, then this option will suit you perfectly! The tall couch aims to provide a pause space, for chats, calls, and semi-private meet-ups.

This is the Pod’s premium state, offering enclosure and privacy for small meetings, serious chats or calls, little lunch siestas or hideaways from that nosy colleague. The collapsible upholstered hood allows you to decide whether you would like to keep the world at bay or not. If not, open it up and the world can filter in, yet you are safe in the knowledge that you can close the hood if more privacy is required.

 

#4 Epik Double Workstation.

RAW Work_epik workstation

Our famous double workstation has evolved to embrace its softer side, with a lovely pin board added to the screen. No more struggling for space or layering notes with the new felt pin board next to your computer/laptop.

Your screens frame can only handle so many sticky notes before you’re left with 2 inches of viewing space, and fluorescent yellow overload. Our added pin boards offer more vertical “pin surfaces” for that next noteworthy lightbulb moment.

The double workstation keeps its convenient sizes, varying in length from 1200mm to 2000mm while keeping a width of 1500mm.

 

#5 Stak-chair.

RAW Work_epik stak-chair

The same chair nestled on the hub, is ready for order on its own or in quantities of 10s or 50s.. (just saying… they’re pretty damn cool).

This new family member has been in the pipeline for months, and has finally agreed to step into the light. All about space saving and convenience, this chair is ready to help when large numbers are expected whilst keeping pre and post event storage to a minimum.

This model veers away from the sad maroon and black steel counterparts in the market and rather embraces birch to the full. To celebrate its uniqueness, the stak-chair™ reveals a signature cross-stitch on its seam.
