Agile versatility: Meet the Avion Collection by Keith Melbourne

The Avion Collection designed by Keith Melbourne for Stylecraft brings a modular and incredibly flexible option for the workplace. It’s a new kind of agile versatility.

Holistic design is something of a catch cry in the design and architecture world. Seamless, integrated, networked – there are plenty of benefits that come with bringing an in-depth level of design, which is where a holistic approach can bring the most value. But sometimes there are projects, or products, that can only be deemed as holistic design, and it’s no understatement to describe Keith Melbourne’s new Avion Collection for Stylecraft as utterly holistic design.

Every element from the production process through to the range of products included has been resolved with an attention to detail and consideration for the needs of the modern office. Avion is the epitome of holistic design.

The form

Despite the wide assortment of products included, Avion has a clear design language. It’s free-flowing, fluid and connected, bringing a refined elegance in every curve. This was made possible with Melbourne’s aeronautical background and keen engineers eye, which entailed a firm grip on the manufacturing capabilities to ensure finesse in every element.

In a nutshell, Avion is a soft architectural system of modular wall, seating and table elements that provide for a variety of functions. Keeping close attention to the end-user, Avion is typified by its human-centred approach, which has resulted in a nurturing product outcome.

Flexibility multiplied

Beyond the sinuous lines and distinct design qualities, Avion brings incredible flexibility. This hyper modular foundation lends itself to the continual evolution being seen in the modern workplace – ensuring longevity of use and adaptability into the future.

The incredibly modular nature of Avion allows designers to build or create custom configurations, combining a number of functions.

From two, four and six person meeting room arrangements to the integration of coat hooks, individual working pods and complementary seating and ottoman offerings, Avion literally has everything a designer, and client, needs as the workplace expands and contracts.

In addition to each of the furniture items, the wall systems that integrate into its configurability also act as a spine to join components while instilling a sense of privacy. The highly considered proportions, functional details and ergonomic forms culminate into a luxurious collection supporting both focus and collaboration.

The Avion Collection brings limitless flexibility, providing a capacity to embrace and respond to the experimentation and evolution occurring in flexible workplaces today.
