The Bespoke Workplace, Unified in Style

The modern workplace is occupied by diverse people with diverse requirements, so why design only for today’s needs, ignoring tomorrow’s? Enter Kinetik



BY Andrew McDonald

April 12th, 2017


When creating Kinetik, UCI’s design philosophy started with a simple concept, to standardise the bespoke workspace. The result is a system of modular office accessories and furniture that anyone can install, remove or relocate as needed.

This results in a more comfortable and flexible environment that promotes productivity and efficiency yet retains the aesthetic cohesiveness that we expect from contemporary designer furniture. The range comprises…

Kinetik Flex: When designing working environments, compromises must often be made with the requirements of most, perhaps not suiting the specific requirements of all. Flex provides an opportunity to mix and match accessories according to the needs of each individual – not only can the workspace be tailored to immediate needs, it can evolve over time as needed

Kinetik Create: With modern day office space at an increasing premium, work points often need to perform multiple roles day to day. Through screens, task-lighting, soft wiring and storage, Create allows you to see a meeting table transform to a hot-desk, group workspace, or even perma­nent workstation.

Kinetik Dynamic: The modern clustered workstation culture provides many benefits to the modern workplace, for sure, though they also present challenges. Kinetik Dynamic enables workspaces to be adjusted on the fly as needed, so that communication and collaboration are possible while still enabling the hard work and productivity of a solo desk environment.

Kinetik Screens: Available in a range of colour options to suit contemporary interior environments, the Kinetik PET Screens provides a suite of privacy options for the modern workspace, available in standard profiles or custom designs.

Kinetik Active Working Tools: Rounding out the bespoke workplace range of design features is a series of functional accessories and accessory mounts to tailor individual workspaces to individual needs.
