ThinkingWorks supplies the commercial furniture industry globally with leading edge products. Last month, the company teamed up with Forza in Auckland to launch the okidoki, Focused and Touch product ranges.
April 6th, 2016
From the new range, okidoki was born from the idea of creating a table and chair family which can easily transition from home to office, with its fun design bringing a sense of informality to any environment. Focused by ThinkingWorks has been designed and engineered to the most exacting principles of automotive design. The super strong chassis is covered by a soft, tactile panel. The table features activity infill trays that have been designed and manufactured using 100% post-consumer recycled materials and are easily interchangeable. Lastly, Touch is inspired by lightness, fluidity and hidden complexity, whilst following the design language of the Focused Work Table. Designed for use in short bursts of activity, it is an evolution of the original work chair concept.
