Introducing the King Dome

We recently introduced the King Dome light designed by Dowel Jones, with YellowTrace, Domus, Trendland, SohoMod and StudioHome featuring the lights.

King Dome is a series of simple spun metal and rod lights available in 3 variations. Versatile in it’s application, King Dome focuses on silhouette and intersecting line with the thin metal structure creating grid like formations within spaces.

Future of Workspaces – Tomorrow’s Workplace Arrives Today

As our technological landscape continues to evolve, so too is our modern workplace. More and more frequently, offices are moving away from centralised locations, to more suburban communities that allow space for innovative workplace solutions. Creating ‘hubs’, has revolutionized the entire concept of the workplace.

Picture an office filled with people. But unlike a traditional office, where all of those people work for the same company or organization,  some of them are freelance writers, graphic designers, programmers and developers; others are in the process of forming start-up companies or working for very small firms. The workspace may simply be a large room where people work at couches, tables and bench desks, or it may contain carrels, cubicles, private offices and even classrooms. These hubs, are the future of the workplace.

Workplace hubs, and the flexibility they allow are leading to greater productivity, increased creativity, lowered levels of work related stress and boosted overall job satisfaction. The ability to approach problems from a variety of angles addresses a simple, but critical, need for employees to embrace collaboration and take advantage of being elbow-to-elbow with other innovators.

As we redefine the parameters of work and how it is conducted, architects and designers are looking to integrate solutions that bring local ‘flavour’ into the workspace. A co-working hub based in Canada for instance, might introduce cedar desking solutions. These Corker pendant lights, are a direct reflection of the iconic Australian cork hat while also embracing the sustainable properties of cork as a material.

Sustainable, collaborative workplaces are redefining the parameters of how we work. As the workforce continues to embrace innovative solutions, employers and employees alike will only benefit from getting onboard!
