A Vidak Vision

Ownworld strengthens its workplace offering with Vidak.

A Vidak Vision

As a highly respected and experienced contract furniture consultancy, ownworld is a leader in its field, supplying a range of outstanding products to architects and designers. With showrooms in Melbourne and Sydney and a network of agents around the country the ownworld offering is vast and encompasses the workplace, hospitality, senior living and education sectors. However with the launch of Vidak, ownworld has taken its workplace furniture offering to the next level with fresh designs and creative solutions for the workplace of today.

The expansive Vidak collection includes ergonomic workstations, privacy pods, collaborative booths and seating that are all fully customisable to address the imperative of ‘function first’. The Vidak design vision encapsulates the ideas that product should perform according to its intended use, be user friendly and relate to the surrounding environment to further enhance the human experience.


Ownworld understands that the current times present challenges for collaborating while working in isolation and the future of the collective work space will reflect the experiences we have all shared. With the return to our workplaces, a re-evaluation of the way in which we work and interact will be paramount and the requirement of privacy and intimacy needs to be balanced with personal interactivity.

Workplaces will be required to become even more flexible and dynamic and also incorporate areas that offer places for quiet time, small groups and safe spaces within the larger office environment. Here, ownworld with Vidak, can offer support, advising clients and end users how best to find personalised solutions for their specific needs. As ownworld has complete access to the Vidak team there can be expert assistance and service through spatial planning and technical advise to collectively problem solve.vidak-vision_ownworld_indesignlive-02

One of the signature furniture pieces from Vidak is the Aerial workstation and this product demonstrates the versatility and multi-functional aspects of a Vidak design. With a contemporary aesthetic and effortless sit-to-stand mechanism, Aerial is at home in every workplace; And to offer limitless customisation, there are other features to consider, such as, concealed cable management, endless configuration possibilities, multiple work top shapes and extensive personalisation through the inclusion of screens, shelves, document holders and pen rails.



The Vidak range also includes collaborative booths and privacy pods. For example, the Huddle, Retreat and Chat collections, present the opportunity for agility and interaction or individual use where and when required. As innovation and technology are imperatives within Vidak products, these practicalities are cleverly concealed within products (such as modular pieces) and allow for change and future re-configuration. However technical components, such as monitors, power and data are integrated for intuitive use and with slim profiling and quality upholstery detailing, Vidak presents a more youthful interpretation of functional, activity-based furnishings.vidak-vision_ownworld_indesignlive-07vidak-vision-ownworld-indesignlive-07

Of course integral to every Vidak product is the ergonomic benefit and with pivoting or retractable tables for ease of seating, correct heights and distancing between seating, table surfaces and people plus genuine comfort there is no better product for the user.

At this time, with chain of supply and delivery of products presenting another challenge, Vidak has circumvented these problems and will be manufacturing the majority of product in Australia. This will allow for lead times to be dramatically slashed to four to six weeks from time fabric is received and will help ensure an assured and fast delivery.Vidak-vision-ownworld-indesignlive-19

As our workplaces are integral to our lives and have the potential to transform organisations, better engage people and provide a happier and more productive environment ownworld is here to help, and at this time when change is the new normal, ownworld is proud to introduce a new and future-thinking furniture collection to the Australian market. It is imperative to understand people, to adapt and design with creativity and innovation to better help those in the workplace and Vidak and ownworld are at the forefront of this movement.
