Product news: German designers Till Grosch and Björn Meier have created a modular office furniture system that can be arranged in a variety of groups and islands (+ slideshow).
The Docks collection includes chairs, tables, shelves and cabinets that can fit together to form open-plan meeting spaces, small pods for individual work and areas for rest and relaxation.
The pieces are made from aluminium with an oak veneer and high-pressure laminate, while seating is upholstered in a range of pastel-coloured fabrics.
The Berlin-based designers said with an unlimited amount of possible combinations, they focused on designing the individual parts so that each configuration is perceived as self contained furniture.
"We see Docks as a flexible ingredient in the constantly changing world of work and due to its modular nature it is designed to continuously keep evolving in line with the needs of a transforming work culture," they said.
"Lamps and side tables can also be docked by slotted panels and by simple indentation they become an integral part of the furniture islands," they added.
