Zones Furniture Collection by Pearson Lloyd

Breadth of offering across multiple workplace applications with consistent design language makes new zones collection unique.

Zones is a comprehensive series of furniture that transforms the office, challenging convention and changing the way people experience work. The collection is comprised of seating, tables, screens, easels and semi-private enclosures which can be used as either intimate collaborative settings or a place of retreat for privacy. In addition to furniture settings, Zones encompasses lighting and accessories. The attention to macro and micro makes the collection distinctive.

“We designed Zones to address change in the office landscape from the fixed and formal settings common today to the informal and flexible settings of the future, zones is a comprehensive series of furniture products that addresses the needs for focus, collaborative and workshop areas within the office environment. It includes new products, applications and settings for contemporary workstyles ranging from creative intimate collaborative settings to places of retreat. Zones also addresses the growing importance of hospitality spaces as a new form of workplace.”

said Tom Lloyd, Pearson Lloyd.

With Zones, create open or semi-enclosed collaborative settings that are lounge or table-based, and designed for sitting or standing. Tables in a variety of sizes and shapes serve meetings for two to half-a-dozen people. Simple chairs, benches, sofas and stools provide practical support and comfort in the spaces between the less flexible geometry of private offices, formal conference rooms and high-density workstations, or across a footprint. Screens can be positioned to lightly define a semi-private space to support teams.

“We have reintroduced Beech as an engineering material which formed the foundation for mass produced furniture in the early 20th century Europe. Beech is an incredible material bringing precision, form, craft and tactility into the office landscape, authenticity of build becomes increasingly important in a world of hyper mass production. Warmth, humanity and simplicity within Zones provides a platform for focus and relaxation, for activity and contemplation.”

said Luke Pearson, Pearson Lloyd.
