KI's new EC4 workplace furniture collection adds a touch of naure to the modern office
Combining the elegance and robustness of solid oak and steel, KI’s EC4 collection of workplace furniture adds a touch of nature to the modern office landscape. Designed and manufactured in the UK, it has all the inherent capabilities of a workstation system so it can be configured to suit open plan areas, meeting rooms and third spaces alike. Its beautiful, classic design is coupled with KI’s reputation for outstanding quality and intelligent engineering.
EC4’s solid oak legs complemented by a variety of coordinating accents and finishes such as oak laminate edge detail on worktops, act as reminders of the natural world and augment wider biophilic design - a concept that aims to bring nature into man-made spaces. This has been shown to reduce stress and improve wellbeing. As many offices are located in highly urbanised areas, such as EC4’s namesake, even small inclusions of natural analogues can enhance the aesthetics of the workspace and a sense of wellbeing for those who inhabit it.
With a streamlined inventory of components, EC4 workstations and tables provide clear, unencumbered space above and below a cantilevered worksurface. The refreshing mixed material aesthetic can be extended into EC4’s storage collection through the introduction of accents and colours, and matching solid oak feet. The collection delivers high performance through intelligent wire management capability and a sliding top as a cost-neutral standard option. Oversailing worksurface and tabletop options create space for informal gatherings and collaboration. The new C-Series screen has been especially created for EC4 and can be added to create more defined individual spaces without compromising the softer, more domestic feel of the workstation.
