Interpret(TM) is a contemporary desking system that works for virtually any person, any task, anywhere in the world. Based on a core platform frame and concise set of components, Interpret is a single product that can be built in many variations to address many workplace needs and planning configurations.

The Projek(TM) synchro-tilt mesh task chair has a self-adjusting, weight-balancing mechanism and promotes a range of postures and movement. It is comfortable, has a clean modern look and is environmentally conscious. Projek is designed by and sold under license from Orangebox Limited and is now manufactured by Teknion in Asia and North America. The Mina(TM) task chair delivers clean design, comfortable workplace seating and ergonomics at a great price point. Available in upholstered and mesh finishes, Mina seating is designed and produced in Asia.
