    1. Commercial Furniture

    2. The Quickbourner Team • Germany, 1959. Two brothers developed the concept of open office layout and brought the idea to the US in 1967. • They believed that many offices hindered work productivity. Their designs promoted good communication and flow. • Referred to a office landscaping. • Their plans were based upon a systems analysis of work flow and communication. • The layout was very free and non-rectilinear.

    3. The Quickbourner Team • People in frequent contact with each other were placed close together. • Many acoustical problems were attempted to be corrected by the use of carpet, plants and acoustical ceiling tiles • This new approach of “landscape” planning had a tremendous impact on the way offices were to be designed. They were flexible, efficient, open and informal. • Americans, however, were slow to accept the idea because they didn’t want to give up their hardwall office, which were status symbols to the executives.

    4. Open Office Landscaping

    5. Robert Propst • Hired by Herman Miller, Inc. in 1960 • A researcher and inventor • Developed Action Office I for Herman Miller and introduced it in 1964. • A panel based system using a vertical approach • Despite what the modern office has become, his goal was to get away from boxes and corridors. • The use of the panels violated the Quickborner concept but was widely accepted as open office landscaping.

    6. “Grade A” Systems Manufacturers • Haworth, Inc. : Unigroup, Premise, and Compose • Steelcase : Series 9000, Avenir, Answer, Kick • Herman Miller: Action Office, Ethospace, Resolve • Allsteel: Stride, Terrace, Concensys • Teknion: T/O/S, Leverage, Transit, District • Knoll: Dividends, Equity, Morrison, Reff, AutoStrada • Kimball: Cetra, Traxx, Footprint

    7. Types of Modular Furniture • Systems Furniture- Panel Based (Universal connectors or handed connectors) • Desking Systems (no panels) • Spine Based (hybrid)

    8. Panel Based System • Monolithic • Stacked or Segmented • Off-modular

    9. Panel Terminology • Monolithic • Raceway • Topcap • Siderail • Honeycomb core • Monocoque Construction • Adjustable levelors/glides • Carpet grippers

    10. Heights and Widths will vary

    11. What is Panel Creep?

    12. Top Cap, Side Rail and Corner Post • Side rails showing “slots” to hang components into. • Corner post

    13. Variable height connectors • Variable Ht. Connectors • Covers exposed panel end when using two different panel heights

    14. Electrical Systems • Haworth has an 8 Wire System • 3 Hot, 3 Neutrals, 1 ground and 1 Isolated Ground • Max 16 amps per circuit • All manufacturers have a different system

    15. Panel System • Top Channel Raceway
