Pair has launched ‘Olli,’ a personalizable workplace system that lets clients customize how it functions by choosing from flexible elements that create space for focused task work, collaborative work, organization, and lounging space.
Multiple functional accessories attach via nodes to the central beam, which also carries power and data. Available accessories include a pivoting privacy screen, coat rack, two side tables, and a hanging bar for planters or a screen. Sliding stackable storage and cushions can be placed along the beam.
Olli’s tackable pivot screen is quite remarkable because it creates privacy from neighboring deskmates with its two panels that lock in 90-degree increments. It can be adjusted into either an L shape that provides privacy from team members both next to and across from the user simultaneously or be shaped into a straight line. Both sides are tackable for better brainstorming-or for easy decorating.
Desks are not tethered to Olli and so they can be spaced out along the beam in order to adhere to social distancing regulations. Multiple pivoting or hanging screens can be installed on the beam in order to create barriers between co-workers. Pair also offers other screens that can be attached to desks for additional space division.
