Raw Studios is much rawer than expected

RAW Studios' highly adaptable Epik plywood furniture leg componentEarlier this year Peet was given the opportunity to talk about his journey with Raw Studios at the Pretoria Institute for Architects’ Ideas Conference.

With 13 years in the making, multiple ranges and 100’s of products available, 45 minutes was just too short to give a complete picture, so we made a short video to introduce Raw Studios and showcase one of our cornerstone products. We put the same thought and care into the making of the video as we do with anything else so please have a look at it here:

The highly adaptable Epik leg component was developed and is now used in over 50 of our product iterations by simply adjusting the length and width of the leg. This design assures that we provide a shorter lead time, create less waste and speed up the installation process.

Despite all the project specific design/supply happening in the background, our Epik workspace range is proving itself as adaptable and timeless as ever with more and more businesses seeing value in a well-considered workplace.

A client recently approached us, stating that “Our workspace had become a grey, muted and uninventive environment, with staff members confined to their desks, silently completing one task after the next and shying away from others behind their cubicles”.

When Raw was asked to help, we knew immediately that beyond the essential focus work areas, the office needed agile spaces, spaces which encourage change and enable new ways of working without restrictions. Here’s the low down of how we transformed their offices:

Firstly, places where employees could meet up and merge ideas were introduced to break outdated rows of tables. We added a standpoint to the mix to let innovation sprout by enabling co-creation moments.

Then, we added pause areas to help change the rhythm of the workplace and offer a moment to refuel.

Also, to get employees out of their seats, to come together and brainstorm, a hub was added making collaborations and presentations easier.

A month down the line, we chatted to the client about their new workspace, and this time their tune had changed: ”Raw Studios equipped us with the tools needed to draw people out to engage in impromptu interactions, to share inspiration and get ideas flowing freely. It was an innovation game-changer for us”.
