Created by a dreamer who was prepared to venture into the unknown and explore new concepts, the ’Pike’ modular workstation is the latest offering from RJ Workspace.

“Sadly, ’Pike’ will be slotted into a furniture category,” says Director and sole designer of RJ Workspace, Radek Lasota of the new modular workstation.
“To its creator though, it is a living thing… a sculptural manifestation of vitality and the dynamics of life.”
Taking its name from Lasota’s dog, ’Pike’ is inspired by the friendship, beauty and intelligence of a very special canine.
The result of this challenging and exciting brief is a modular workstation for the modern office that achieves a sense of weightlessness and seemingly re-defines gravity.
’Pike’ is designed specifically to take on the challenges of the most demanding work environments.
A flexible footprint allows ’Pike’ to expand or contract with ease, providing solutions for the most unorthodox and non-conventional workspaces.
All the elements of ’Pike’ work in harmony with each other and with the user.
Intelligent skeletal trunking provides easily accessible and generous cable management; above bench storage offers a multitude of solutions; cleverly designed privacy screens allow for truly individual spaces.
Materially, ’Pike’ combines elements that are structurally brutal and visually enticing.
A moulded powder-coated or anodised aluminium skeleton with polished aluminium joints supports light cable trays and hatches made from translucent ABS.
Above the bench, anything is possible with textiles, hard steel pods, interchangeable Perspex, fabric or Eco-Panel screens and a multitude of add-ons.
As for size, Lasota sees dimensional and load bearing capacity restrictions as a thing of the past. ’Pike’ is whatever you want it to be.
