Simpl Stor™, 2016 refreshed version more versatile and project friendly.

Raw Simpl Stor New office storage furniture

Since its unceremonious launch three years ago the simpl stor™ range has grown from a basic storage solution into something very refined and varied in its application possibilities whilst still retaining that simple clean-lined elegance, quirkiness and downright ridiculously high cuddle factor.

For its 2016 refresh we have stuck to the look and feel now so famous within our ranges but with the doors and drawer faces set back into the frame slightly to create cleaner door integration and allowing the strong grid lines to define the look even further.

Additionally we have added two appearance options that we are sure will be appreciated by designers on larger projects namely a new handle option (see image hereunder) and slotted door “locker” option that is reminiscent of our well known Ikonik™ range.

The plan is to develop the locker version into a fully fledged range within simpl stor™ and offering ikonik™ style coolness in a more affordable and lockable version.

Offis™ System
The new collaborative, connected workplace is not only about redefining our mind-set about what furniture we need and how our space needs to be reconfigured to be effective. It also requires a new appraisal of how people and technology interact for the benefit of employer and employee. The technology revolution offers new potential that will require all of us to embrace flexibility to change how we work and collaborate.

We have taken what we have learnt about office spaces over the last 10 years and translated this into the system that we use in our own office. Beautifully designed in the trademark Raw Studios look and feel, ergonomic, affordable and practical, the system addresses the more traditional functions and layouts present in office environments, as well as cutting-edge thinking around mobile and highly connected modern office environments. This includes hot-desking and the very necessary flexible-use space between and around traditional workspaces.

Raw Studios is proud to officially launch our new office system, named Offis™ at 100% Design South Africa 2014 from 6-10 August.100% Design South Africa 2014 from 6-10 August.

Visiting our stand, you will find solutions that are the result of years of development, research and consultation with our clients and the public, addressing four main space applications that we have identified, with their respective creative solutions. These include:

Collaborative space: Including formal and informal meeting spaces, brainstorm and activation or fun spaces.

Quiet space: This consists mainly of open workstations and fixed or mobile storage areas. Screened sufficiently for employees to do focused work, but also open enough to promote interaction with colleagues.

Private space: Traditionally referred to as a closed office or highly-screened private cubicle, these spaces nowadays are used more when an executive or sensitive workspace is required.

Co-space: On the cutting edge of contemporary office space planning are the crossover spaces, which are purposefully scattered in and amongst the quiet and collaborative spaces. Allowing employees to mingle in a professional and social way can inspire creativity and create opportunities for collaboration and unplanned meetings that can add value to the business. These spaces increase knowledge sharing, build a sense of community and improve employee satisfaction and retention. They typically include multi-functional, semi-private pods, soft furnishings alongside normal office task chairs and discussion tables, ottomans and mobile laptop tables

With so many size and configuration choices, we are convinced that Offis™ will inject a breath of fresh air into office spaces everywhere!
