This Clerkenwell Design Week, Bisley has designs on doing things differently
Products and solutions grounded in insight and understanding is what you’ve come to expect from Bisley. In celebration of the first anniversary of their showroom in the heart of Clerkenwell, Bisley will be launching several new products, as well as introducing some exciting collaborations.
Bisley is delighted to unveil BOB, the beautifully crafted modular storage and display system. Premiering in Milan and developed in collaboration with award winning British designer Paul Kelley, BOB’s infinite configurations can be adapted for any use and environment, whether at home or in the workplace.
The collaboration unifies Kelley’s design innovations with the expert craftsmanship and manufacturing expertise of Bisley.
BOB is meticulously hand crafted and features a clever system that uses technology friendly magnets to securely lock the modules together. The beauty is in the simplicity and playfulness of the design; cubes and units click together to form different arrangements, allowing the user to change the design of the system instantly, whenever they choose. During Clerkenwell Design Week, visitors to the showroom will have the chance to play with BOB and create their own configurations.
Let it Be
Reimagined for 2019, Bisley’s next evolution of Be will be unveiled during Clerkenwell Design Week. Designed in-house by Bisley, Be is a creative, dual aspect, integrated furniture and storage solution that connects people and the workspace.
Inspired by the need for a versatile, open working environment, Be's adaptable, flexible workspace provides a mix of organic hubs where people can interact and connect; whether an area for collaborative working, an individual space for focused desk work, or a relaxed setting for quality breaks.
With both a pre-designed range and a fully bespoke option, the units are available in a range of heights, widths, colours and choices of materials and finishes. Perfectly suited for creating subtle space and territory division in open plan settings, Be supports multiple possibilities in the workplace, creating environments that inspire performance.
New Partnerships & Innovation
In addition to their collaboration with Paul Kelley, Bisley will also be revealing their partnership with Swiss company Moving Walls, which will be available to view, and interact with, in the showroom.
Moving Walls is a new generation of mobile magnetic writeable surfaces, designed to encourage collaboration and creativity in modern work environments. With their new agreement, Bisley has the exclusive distribution rights for the products of Moving Walls in the UK and Ireland, USA, Mexico & France. The Moving Walls portfolio has grown to incorporate long-lasting office tools that work individually or as a system, changing the way people work with each other: mobile, agile and flexible. The combination of Moving Walls and Bisley storage allows the creation of highly-productive, truly flexible spaces for people to come together to work creatively and effectively in comfort.
TWO is the innovation and technology arm of Bisley, whose vision is to improve the business environment through technology. TWO (Technology at Work) has developed a portfolio of, high-quality, useful and innovative technologies and will be showcasing a number of products, including premiering the award-winning Evaclite at Clerkenwell Design Week 2019.
People come first at TWO, and Evaclite emergency signs help keep people safe. Evaclite’s range of dynamic and adaptive emergency exit signs have been recognised by the industry for its innovative solution that increases the speed of evacuations, winning Product Innovation of the Year at the prestigious Security and Fire Excellence Awards 2018.
Bisley’s next wave of innovations are designed to inspire imagination and productivity beyond the traditional workstation. Join Bisley at the Dallington Street showroom to see BOB, Be, TWO and new partnerships, as well as a number of additional exciting collaborations and products not yet released, that will be premiering at Clerkenwell Design Week 2019.
