    The Cleveland Browns’ $5 million, four-month renovation project vastly improves its Training and Administrative Complex in Berea, Ohio. The renovations are designed by the nationally recognized, integrated architecture, engineering, and technology design firm Westlake Reed Leskosky of Cleveland, Ohio, and recently recognized with an AIA Ohio 2014 Honor Award. The new workplace is a thoroughly modern space, respectful of the history and tradition of the Cleveland Browns yet forging a progressive identity for the team, via bold imagery, messaging, team branding and colors.

Best of NeoCon 2016 awards Teknion Best of Competition

Teknion_Zones_FurnCollforCollabThe Best of NeoCon 2016 Best of Competition honor went to Teknion for Zones, in the Furniture Collections for Collaboration category. The comprehensive series of furniture products addresses the needs for focus, collaborative, and workshop areas within the office environment. It includes products, applications and settings for contemporary work styles ranging from creative intimate collaborative settings to places of retreat. Zones addresses the growing importance of hospitality spaces as a new form of workplace.

Designed by Tom Lloyd and Luke Pearson of PearsonLloyd, a London-based design consultancy, Zones is influenced and inspired by the untethered, modern worker who seeks movement, flexibility and convenience. Zones transitions the workplace from one that’s fixed and formal to a space that suits a variety of preferences and working habits. The collection represents an exploration of design concepts that addresses the social and technological changes driving behavior at work. Zones embraces a merging of technology and tactility. Combining craft/natural materials (wood) and industrial materials (cast metal, molded plastic) leads to efficiency. It departs from traditional workstation typologies, balancing comfort and function, softness and rigor, craft and precision engineering. BON_2016_630x380
