Avion is a soft architectural system of upholstered walls with integrated seating and table elements. The collection’s truly modular nature invites the innovative creation of contemporary workplaces by reducing the scale of spatial design to that of furniture.
Avion’s functions include desking, 2, 4 and 6 person meeting rooms, individual work pods, integrated lounging and a complimentary freestanding collection. The visual and acoustic separation achieved by the wall system creates the opportunity for these contrasting functions to co-exist in close proximity.
