• KI’s upgraded 800 Series storage to be unveiled at CDW2019

        • An evolution of KI’s 800 Series steel storage, featuring a new modular shelving system, will be presented at Clerkenwell Design Week in May 2019. This addition to the range will help organisations reinvent and update their storage to create agile workplaces, either as an enhancement to existing storage or within a new office layout. 

          Like the 800 Series storage range, the modular shelving system is designed and manufactured in the UK. Constructed entirely from powder-coated steel in a variety of colours, including at its joints, the framework could be suitable for projects looking to achieve WELL certification. Its steel tubing can be cut to size, allowing easy and cost-effective customised options for designers and specifiers when working off-module.

          Open and closed units can be created with steel or wood inserts in various dimensions. Desks and breakout seating can be easily integrated to create even more functionality. The system’s flexibility gives designers great freedom in creating unique interior architecture.    

          Jonathan Hindle, KI’s Group Managing Director, EMEA said, “designing agile, highly space efficient offices can be greatly improved with furniture that is adaptable and can evolve over time. It is increasingly important for organisations to provide an office landscape that is rich in variety and choice for workers. This exciting evolution of our highly successful 800 Series system gives our customers extensive configuration options as they move away from traditional filing and paper storage. It adds to a more domestic environment without compromising on functionality, incorporating fully integrated worksurfaces and soft seating elements.”

          The installed base of KI storage can now also be refurbished and enhanced with this new shelving system. A project was completed by PwC through 2018, where thousands of lateral files were converted into personal lockers by KI, reducing the company’s procurement costs and environmental impact whilst creating a more contemporary, agile workspace. Whether new or refurbished, 800 Series storage can be further updated with RFID-enabled contactless locking systems, PET felt doors, planter boxes, sloping tops, wooden plinths, and MFC cladding.
